Android 2.1= Eclair
Android 2.2= Froyo

You can't do anything until you update to 2.2

Search for RSD Lite to flash Froyo SBF files (ie stock ROMs). Plenty of info in this forum. Remember to wipe data & cache after flash.

After that, root, install 2nd-init.

For custom ROM I recommend CM10 4.1.2 since CM7 is a bit outdated.

Read the wiki for DEFY and/or the Q&A-Threads/Guides. They shall answer your basic questions (hence the name) ...

20130301 CM7 for me is the best. Speed and stability.

Ok, so what exactly is your problem? chandujram linked the beginners guide, where you may find that you need RSDLite (the flashing tool) and a SBF file to flash matching your phone and region (and provider if you want) - both are linked in the thread. Follow the instructions to flash the SBF to your phone and you have Froyo/Gingerbread. This thread should give you a clue, what SBF is Froyo or Gingerbread - and what bootloader they bring. you have read and understood, that certain bootloader versions come with some restrictions, haven't you? Good. Then follow the instructions in the thread for the rom you posted.
