Yeah, there's about 7 or 8 different models, mostly based on carriers. The I-9505 model that the rom is meant for is the unlocked international S4. Your Verizon version is the I545. There pretty similar hardware wise except for the radio firmware for cell signal is different. Also, the S4 on AT&T and Verizon have their bootloader locked to prevent the device from booting up roms, kernels, or recoveries that don't pass a signature check that it's authentic software. That's what happened when you flashed the I-9505 rom to your device. It didn't contain the signature that will allow the bootloader to load it correctly. However if you restore your stock rom nandroid, or reflash a stock rom through odin, your device will be fine.
