That said, to clear up some confusion, bootloaders themselves aren't bad. You need them to boot your operating system. Gingerbread bootloaders are desirable to boot Gingerbread and ICS roms on our phones because they were designed to do that - and do that without rainbow bugs that people see when they stay with Froyo bootloaders.
If the majority of us will be flashing Gingerbread and ICS roms, why take out the Gingerbread bootloaders and make it as an optional install which makes it risky for an unfortunate flash if it ever happens?
So what bootloader does these packages comes with? Or are they without bootloaders?
I'm still new in understanding all of these components. So our phones can run these roms without a bootloader or must a bootloader be utilized?
There are no bootloaders in these rooted UCLB3 packages, so you keep those already on your phone. Only those who are bothered by some rainbow artifacts at boot and in recovery should update to GB bootloaders. Since flashing bootloaders is a risky operation, there is no need for everyone to flash them when using the rooted UCLB3 packages.

This will be your best route. Doing the Odin flash of the rooted UCLB3 package will test whether you can successfully do an Odin flash. If you can, you will be safe to go ahead and flash the GB bootloaders package.
Since it sounds like you want to test out some other ROMS, go ahead and use Option C, which already has CWM recovery.
