To develop your own rom is pretty damn hard. I wouldn't attempt it.

You can certainly remove apps and add apps etc. You could even add themes after some practice but to create a stable rom from scratch you basically need to be super human.

This is a good place for developers:

A rom is just a bunch of .apk files, and in theory its real wasy to make a rom. Trick is makin a good one.

Hint: .apk

Seriously. like Danfrance says, its expert stuff. Would you know how to recover from a simple bootloop?

You can easily damage your phone.

I did say "stable"

I suppose if you are going to use someone elses kernels as a base, it wouldn't be too hard to compile something.

I won't be making a rom. I resolve windows issues but I won't be releasing a PC operating system either

Wouldn't know where to start. My design skills are poor though, so it would look rubish.

sorry but this is incorrect

Rom is a load of so and lib based instructions from linux/unix which is contained within a virtual layer called dalvic. at this level there is no apk
people assume as most devs midify and update the application layer of various base roms but a Rom in fact is not a bunch of apk's

only at application level does the apks kick in which offer various extra bits of functionality
you also have the kernel which dalvic needs to run on
