Default How to choose a ROM, and why, anyways?

The stock setup for the S4 is annoying. It takes up too much space and I don't care about many of the extra features using the sensors. So it seems like a good idea to use a custom ROM. But how do I choose one? And will it really be any better?
Will it be worth waiting for the official version of the S4 Google Edition ROM?
Do any ROMs make it possible to pick and choose among other S4-specific features and pre-installed bloatware? Can those apps be pulled over from the stock ROM?

What do you guys think?

Objectives:

a fast phone with a lot of storage
stable, with battery life optimized
wi-fi tethering separate from carrier control
retain the multi-window functionality, works well when modified to include more apps, or are there other approaches to multitasking?

non-essential
all the extra stuff for the S4 camera, the custom modes etc
