You can never unlock the bootloader technically but you can bypass its security using Loki though you have to downgrade from kitkat stock in order to do so. As you can see there's a thriving custom ROM community so this doesn't stop anyone, it just makes it more of a hassle initially if you're on KitKat.

Rooting can be done on any ROM but will trigger root detection if you root all the way. Flashing stock will cure that though.

Root is available for Kitkat on g2, just root your phone and install autorec app on your phone it will do everything for you.
It will unlock your bootloader, and replace it with old bootloader and also flashed a patched kernel and flash twrp recovery.

Your international variant - d802 will work just fine : root + autored (for installing recovery) + if you want to install a custom rom.
