hi, sorry for my english.
i didn't find a complete guide to install a custom rom(pixel experience).
i'm on stock rom.

i think:
- unlock bootloader with procedure of all xiaomi (question: can i unlock only one device each 30 days?)
- install twrp from (question: from adb?)
- flash rom from twrp?(question: i don't need root, can i not set root?)

thanks

These are the steps:

• Unlock bootloader (mi flash unlock) (Yes)
• Install twrp (through fastboot mode)

• Boot to twrp
• Format data -> yes
• Reboot twrp
• Factory reset
• Copy the files to your device (or use an usb-otg)
• Flash the rom
• [Optional] Flash GApps + Magisk + DFE
• Factory reset
• Reboot system

Is format data going to delete system partition??

You should backup persist partition before factory reset and installing any ROM to avoid potentially losing L1.
