i heard about some struggles a chinese devices could take but "Chineshe unit + Global ROM = Brick" make me so confused, really.
Now my device is miui 12 china, a10. what can i do to afford to install custom rom? and what kind of custom rom is for my device? thanks
From my understanding from the post "ROM" in this case means "firmware".
So only flash if your chinese device is on a chinese firmware.

At least the manual to install PE is working well.
What's best for you depends on your usecase and requirements.

So i have to keep the stock firmware (i mean it's chinese devices, so it might be chinese firmware) in order to install custom rom without distracting of those custom firmware, right? what about CFW rom? Can i try them?

Hmmm, for example PE (as far as I know) brings its own TWRP-recovery (including a custom firmware). If you install this everything is working.
For other ROMs I do not know.
The issue with begonia in particular is that it can brick if you don't do thing right. That's why everyone is pointing to the megathread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/redmi-note-8-pro/how-to/guide-redmi-note-8-pro-megathread-t4056527

All this is pretty much off-topic I think. Maybe write me a private message to continue talking or check other threads, i.e. the PE thread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/rom-11-begonia-pixel-experience-official-aosp.4196041/

I am also just an amateur with all this.

one question pls. My device is on chinese firmware, do i need to flash global ver first?
I suggest you to read the megathread first. It's perhaps obsolete but is one method to save you from headaches.
For this question, I think device region doesn't matter as long as you get your device's bootloader unlocked, and on the same firmware level as your target ROM (e.g. Android 10 MIUI to be installed with Android 10 ROMs). And there is CFW and non-CFW roms and recoveries, you can get info on CFW, why it's matter, and why it's obsolete and developers are dropping it in the megathread.

    When you say Indian are you talking about a global version and not Chinese version?

    Yes, I mean if you have a Chinese device flash only if the firmware is Chinese or if it's global/any other firmware apart from Chinese same goes for Indian devices and Indonesian there are chances it might get bricked/loop.

    In short
    Chinese unit + Chinese ROM = Safe
    Indian unit + Indian ROM = Safe
    But if
    Chineshe unit + Global ROM = Brick
    Indian unit + Chinese ROM = Brick
