Default [Q] restoring from CM10.1 (4.2.2) to rooted nandroid stock (4.2.1)

I might be asking too many questions here, but these all are actually banging my head as off now and just want to double sure the impact -

History -
Used to have stock rom (4.1.x)
Rooted and Flashed to CM 10.1 (4.2.2) [Have a nandroid backup of my rooted stock rom]

Now I want to go back to the rooted stock - Questions

#1 - Is it possible to go back to 4.1 from 4.2.x ?
#2 - Can the nandroid backup be used to do the flashing (means wipe CM and use the backup to restore to earlier state). if yes, pls give me the procedure to do that.
# If #2 not possible, what are my options ?

If you are using cm 10.1 means,, your base rom is 4.1

Flash with your sock rom 4.1 and make a backup

Flash wiith cm 10.1 and make a backup

You can restore both backups with your requirments but remember full wipe data and davik cache

Secondly You can't restore stock roms backups of 4.1 on 4.2 OR 4.2 on 4.1( it gives us a bootloap)

Get any stock 4.1.2 rom from sammobile.com then flash using odin. Then flash CWM. After that you will be able to restore your nandroid backup.
You cannot restore your nandroid 4.1.2 backup if you are on 4.2.2

Went the other way around - Installed the 4.2.2 stock removing the CM 10.1.
