yes it will change your firmware, and same goes if you reinstall the stock firmware,
a custom rom is a custom firmware in a installable zip file (flashable zip)

root is a file in your system which alows root access, stock firmware does not have this, custom roms(firmwarwes, systems) do but this depends on if the author included it
