Different ROMs add and/or remove certain apps and features, you just need to find the one that suits your needs. I personally like Biggins ROM the most but it's just my preference.

I looked up that rom and looks great especially the blue theme and do sent seem to have too much as far as tweaks. I might switch. I thought there were probably a dozen rom out there- I don't know how many there are- I never heard of this one. My only problem now is install or downloading the visual voicemail, I've found and tried to download but I get 'x App not installed'- I don't know what I'm doing wrong and how to get these back in. Any ideas?
Thanks,
TJ

You're probably going to have to move the file into the system/app folder, change permissions to match the rest of the files then reboot.

Would moving the app or apk be done on pc with Odin? Is there anywhere I can read on how to change permissions?

You just use a Root Explorer type ap and copy the file from its current location and paste it in the system/app folder then change the permissions of the apk to match the other files. Just long press on the file and select "change permissions" once the file has been moved. They should be like this file:

Well I dl'd root file explorer and found the files I wanted to change also found the system clicked on it then found the app file opened it up and saw all the apk's etc. When I click on copy and checked the app folder and then paste it wanted to rename 'app'. I got confused and didn't do anything at that point that's going mess things up?

Update, I was able to copy and paste Samsung Apps, change permissions and install but not Verizon visual voicemail apk so I think there is something wrong with the file
