This is my own custom ROM for the Nexus 6 called noobbuilds. It is an AOSP 6.x based ROM with a few added useful features. I am an old retired guy who enjoys the hobby of builiding and using his own roms. I'm just sharing my rom not competing with the big the boys. I intend to add features and update ROM as AOSP updates.

I really like this ROM. Very smooth and ever thing I have checked is working. I have yet to test Android Pay. Anyhow, would it be possible to include carrier information on status bar? Right now, one has to go to the lock screen to verify that they are indeed using WiFi Calling and not data for phone call. In the past, I have noticed in some ROMs that despite the option being checked in settings, it doesn't always turn on automatically.

I have read that Android Pay only works on N6P and N5X for now. I don't use WiFi calling. I'm on Verizon. I do, however, use Hangouts for phone calls and video calls when on WiFi. I will look into including your request in future builds.
Thanks for the report.

Can use the Google dialer and contacts from PS on this ROM?

From my experience contacts worked but dialer did not. Dialer only worked for me on Google img based roms.

I agree w/ @tomzefi. Most aosp roms don't include all required support for the Google dialer . I like my roms dialer and contacts because I use the dark theme rom option. If you need google dialer for Fi try this. No guarantees from me I don't use it.
