    If it can be done,look no further:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/verizon-galaxy-s6/development

    If you just want to de-bloat of VZW Crapware,use Package Disabler Pro & disable (do not delete) the offending apps:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ospolice.packagedisablerpro&hl=en
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ospolice.packagedisablerpremium&hl=en

    You don't even need root for this option.
    If warranties,tripping Knox,breaking Samsung Pay are concerns,no worries,nothing is broke/modified using PDP.............

    The hardware on the Verizon model isn't the best match,although useable:

    Even if you could convert the phone to run the full T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Stock ROM,that will not change anything from what you currently have,the hardware simply will not support it as a 100% T-Mobile device.

    All you can do as compatibility goes is drop in the T-Mobile SIM & Set up the APN for T-Mobile & use the bands available.
    You may also need to contact VZW,IDK,they're a different animal altogether vs GSM carriers (most of the rest of the world & AT&T/T-Mobile)..........................

    Everyone keeps saying the hardware is different. But everything that I've looked at says it is not. The only thing that is different is what they allow in the firmware from the various providers. Reception also would be better if they switch to the T-Mobile ROM because they use different Bands then Verizon. I would love to see a more detailed reason why this cannot be done. Because I think I can.

    Also that link that you provided is just showing you with the Verizon ROM how it will work on the T-Mobile network. It's not saying anything about if a different ROM can be put on the Verizon phone or if the hardware is any different.
