1) I don't think you need root permission. If necessary root with iroot : http://www.iroot.com/ or kingoroot : https://www.kingoapp.com/ Both are one click root method.

2)I never upgraded to lolipop, so don't know if it can be flashed in lolipop or not. But I think most probably it should work with lolipop. Either way here is the link to stock kitkat, If this didn't work
http://www.droidgyan.com/recovery-flashable-stock-rom/ - to flash via Recovery
http://www.droidgyan.com/stock-kitkat-rom-a106/ - to flash via SP flash tool.
Either Kitkat or Lolipop your flashing via custom recovery right? so I think It wouldn't matter.
Custom Recovery for Lolipop/Kitkat : http://www.geekstreet.in/2016/02/ctr-version-3-recovery-for.html

3)You can Increase your app storage by this method
for Lolipop : http://www.droidgyan.com/repartition-lollipop-ota/
for Kitkat : http://www.droidgyan.com/repartition-kitkat-without-pc/
Read everything carefully in these links^

4) Well I only used it for 2 days, and I can say its pretty smooth and awesome. No bugs found yet, for me atleast :p . I think its bugs are fixed. Although a very nice rom, Smooth and Fast. Thank to Developers :good:

To install:
1. Increase app storage
2. Install a custom recovery(you can use the one mentioned above)
3. Wipe Data, Cache, Dalvik cache and format system.
4. Install Zip from SD card.
5. After Install successful Wipe dalvik cache again
6. Reboot. Done! ;)
