1) the rom thread says its only for wifi model...so is it safe to flash those roms on our P601 ?
2) can you pls give link to TWRP recovery you flashed and steps to flash it for the first time on stock unrooted p601 pls ?
3) link to ODIN which will work to flash TWRP and stock roms
4) is flashing custom kernels really needed and does everything else work except 3g ?
5) last but most importantly, can we flash stock indian rom when we need to revert back to stock and sell device...roms are available in sammobile.com

Yes its safe , I have been personally using P600 roms for quite sometime and except for 3G all is well . ( Though I would love it if some one can make 3G Work too )
You can download Odin and TWRP that I use from this link -

Flashing Custom Kernels is not mandatory at all , tho they do have some good stuff like some touchscreen tweaks , and Ram tweaks & other complex tweaks .
Yes , when you want to sell your tablet you can flash using Odin any Stock Rom from sammobile . I have done this too

Neither the N2 or the N10.1-12 have KitKat. One incomplete leak for each device for a single region is what's available. And for the N10.1-12, for some reason, the leak is for the 3G version. You don't see the N10.1-12 Wi-Fi owners freaking out and claiming a conspiracy. 4.4 for the N10.1-14 (and I count Wi-Fi, 3G, and 4G as a single product) has been out in official form for just a week. There's no reason to believe that the 3/4G versions are going to be treated any differently than the Wi-Fi versions in terms of a region-by-region roll out which is how Samsung delivers updates. I have a 3G N10.1-14 and will wait (patiently) for the first region to receive 4.4. If it's EU I'll install the update via Odin even though it's different from my current CSC. If the update's Asian, Eastern European, Latin American, or for a carrier I'll wait. Samsung's update process takes way too long to reach all versions/regions of a device being updated but single products (EG: Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G) aren't singled out for better or worse treatment. Sometimes 3G/4G receive updates before Wi-Fi and sometimes it's the other way around. The first leak and official update from 4.0.4<>4.1 for the N10.1-12 happened to be for the 3G version (which I owned).
