Default [Rooting question] Incoming call font size...

I had a HTC One X and it was the best phone I ever had except for the incoming call screen which I could barely read at the best of times because it was tiny. I don't use ID photo's and most of my calls are not saved in my contacts anyway. So I got rid of it and went to iPhone
I don't like iPhone more than android so I want to buy a HTC One but cannot find out if the font is any bigger.
Ideally I would like a generic picture that is not the green android man and the name/number to be BIG.
If I root can I achieve this by using an app of some sort. I did try an app before but kept getting both stock and app caller screen - was this because I was not rooted?
I have watched the rooting process online and think I can do it but will it give me the caller screen that I want? Also the risk of bricking - can this just happen or is it only if I mess it up myself?
Thanks for any help

Welcome.
rooting opens up many possibilities, however just "rooting" your device is not all you need to do. you will have to cook a rom that has the features you want or find one already prepared in someone else's kitchen

but yes you can have your aunt bertha's image pop up on screen if you want and can adjust the dialer/caller screen to taste.
