Again, depends on the ROM and type of package (Odin or not). Haven't tried it with a stock ROM and an Odin package (I guess that should work).
But don't worry too much about being rooted or not. Rooting is a very simple process and can easily be reverted. Start flashing one of the many stock roms and see how that goes.
Next try rooting your device and install Feamod Recovery (see other thread).
When your device still feels ok, and you have tried to make your first backup in Feamod (and could successfully restore it - don't worry, all these things do not hurt your phone and can be reverted), then start looking into Custom Roms...
In all cases my advice is always:
* Take more than enough time when you start (at least 4 hours even though the actual process takes only 10 minutes you may end up in debugging why something does not work
* Preferably take a backup of everything you have - best is backup through Feamod Recovery (and make sure to test restoring the backup at least once)
