Default Use Xperia Arc ROMs on the Arc S?

Hello.

I've got the Arc S a few days ago and its pretty good. This is my first smartphone. Im also new to android rooting and ROMs.
I had to search a few days to find a working way to root it and i cant find any ROMs for it (or i have been searching for them in the wrong places).
So my question is: Can i flash Xperia Arc ROMs on the Xperia Arc S?
Also, if i accidentally brick my phone, will i be able to unbrick it?

I've not thought about rooting this yet.

Can I ask why you want to root it? What else do you need the phone to do? Just interested in case I'm missing out on something great
