A: No, you can't. You'll need to wait until I port the update.

Q: Does this ROM come pre-rooted
A: No, it's the A1 stock rom which doesn't come rooted. If you want root, flash Magisk through TWRP

You should flash Oreo TWRP once you installed Oreo on your device. If you are currently on Nougat (almost 99% of people, since this is the first Oreo ROM for the 5X), you should flash Nougat TWRP.

Maybe flashing Oreo TWRP while in Nougat works too, but I didn't test it, so I can't recommend it. Nougat TWRP for example doesn't work when Oreo is installed.

i laready flashed Nougat TWRP over Oreo ROM and still it boots... Flashed Nougat TWRP so that I can flash NOugat and Oreo ROMs with changing TWRP? Am I right?

Flashing Nougat TWRP while in Oreo won't make your ROM not to boot, it is just that the recovery became unusable, it won't be able to mount /data partition, so it won't show any files to flash. Also you could experience random reboots.

Flashing firmware isn't mandatory, just recommended.

Sorry, probably missing the point, but how does that answer my question ? This is my "daily" phone would hate to soft brick it by doing something wrong

You can install it from TWRP if you have it installed. Just change zip installation to image installation, and then select recovery partition
