that is correct. when in fastboot mode of the bootloader,plugging in to the PC will display on the white bootloader screen fastboot usb

typing fastboot devices in the cmd window should spit back the serial number,just like adb devices will in the booted OS

there is not much to explain with this one. if booted to recovery from above,use the recovery menu on your phone to:
*make a backup of your stock,unrooted rom. this is NOT an option! please... do it.
-wipe cache
-wipe dalvik cache
-install zip from sd card(chose your superuser file)
-reboot

*congratulations,youre rooted


But I assume I can skip this since I already have the superSU working? Also, what are the basic steps for flashing a new ROM?
correct,since you have working superSU,no need to flash him again.

flashing roms uses that same sequence,except youll pick the rom's zip file instead of superSU,and adding the make a backup step:

-make backup
-wipe cache
-wipe dalvik cache
-install zip from sd card(chose your rom file)
-reboot
