What would happen if I modified the ROM.ZIP in my %temp% folder after launching an RUU but before the actual flashing? Could one theoretically flash a custom ROM without unlocking the boot loader?

Best case: it runs perfectly fine.
Worst case: bricked.

You're playing with fire and the consequences are undeniably worse than simply unlocking your bootloader and doing a custom ROM. Also, AFAIK, the rom.zip file is not formatted the same as any ROMs available right now, so you'd have to recompile them into .IMG files.
