Need help!!

Hey!! I am running CM12 on my Xperia P but I need to upgrade to CM12.1 as I am facing memory leak issues and hopefully Google fixed them on 5.1.. So can I port an official CM12.1 ROM (say of Xperia SP) to my device running unofficial CM12 with this method and if yes then what will be the base rom and port rom for this project.. ?

Isn't it the sole purpose of porting a ROM? There is no 5.0.2 ROM for my phone and I just wanna port myself.. If I can't port a ROM from diff. phone, then what's the purpose of this guide is? BTW I m new to porting so can u give a link to a proper thread for instructions on porting a rom to diff. phone?

i've trying to port cm12.1 on galaxy win. and port it and flash secarefully . but i see bootloop on cyanogen logo.
Inside lib folder search for these libs:

libandroid_runtime.so
libandroid_servers.so
libmedia_jni.so and replace them in base folder and install zip again. but i see a bootloop on samsung logo. and i can't use phone. how i can fix this bootloop??

Nice and helpful and easy to understand guide :)
Here is my question:
The base rom is CM7.2 but there is some bugs (Camera,bluetooth,...blah blah) I mean fixable bugs but idont have that knowlege to fix them myself
Port rom is full funtional (CM7.2 as well) but for another drvice (same resolution, same manufaturer, ....)
In this case
If i ported this rom will those bugs be fixed??
Sorry I dont have much time due to some *** exams so I cant just try and burn this time in testing
I read till page 10 and I didnt find any answer for my question
Just want to know if this port will fix my base rom :D
