I'm not really sure if you mean "flash" by "root" but yes. You can flash any stock ROM as long as your bootloader is locked. Your data will be wiped and you will no longer have root access.
It will be like a brand new phone.
Go check some guides on how to flash back to stock with flashtool.
Use Google for NSIS error fix. I think there are alot of guides aswell.

You need to use XperiaFirm software to download the official ROM and convert it into ftf.

Here are some Tutorials from @mrjraider

Just read carefully and read the steps.
P.S. If you have unlocked your bootloader, you need to restore your DRM Keys, then lock it again.
Good Luck!
