I'm a noob

Hi there I am new in this domain and recently i tried to install a custom rom on my j500FN but I had a lot of failed attempts.. 5 roms went to greenscreed even before I reinstalled the original firmware and some sent an error in twrp (tried to fix as well , still nothing happends) , the only one working was an older version of ressurection remix where camera focus and flashlight were not working. And now I installed the stock rom and updated to 6.0.1 (so my phone is not rooted anymore)
My questions are: This rom supports j500FN?
What is firmware bootloader LP and how can I install it in order to make this work? I am sick of wasting hours booting my device over and over again because of so many issues
Can you please help me?

You can use both LP(Lollipop) or MM(Marshmallow) firmwares. Make sure you install whole firmware and not only modem etc (That's what i do to make sure everything will be ok). Also, make sure you choose the correct region of the firmware. Then, after flashing the firmware, boot your phone. Turn it off, flash custom TWRP (I have TWRP 3.1.0-0 with aroma support by By Zonik). **make sure you flash it correctly, un-tick auto reboot in odin and when flashing recovery is finished, remove battery and get in recovery**. Do a clean full wipe (you can keep Internal Storage un-wiped) and then flash the ROM. Also, flash Gapps and then SuperSU or Magisk (I prefer SuperSU). YOU'RE DONE! Did i help?

Still lack power configure the physical keys. You can only enable Google assistant or mode multi-windows with the keys virtual. :(

It was stated above that it works on FN as well.
When I try to install the ROM from TWRP on FN device, it states that this ROM is not for the FN device. So it prevents installing this ROM on FN.

So far this rom is the best. But battery wont charge up to a full 100%, only charges up to 95%. Whats causing this?

    1. How to change the recent system
    2. How to disable the physical keys when activating the virtual keys

    Just disable SlimRecents in settings, I'm not sure but I think the rom haven't that option, but you can do it anyway

    J5lte? Does that mean only j500f?
