If you just follow the instructions step by step it seems pretty straight forward! Feel free to ask questions if you don't understand something in the steps. I'm not a pro with this device but can help with hopefully some general knowledge stuff. I can probably at least help you through the steps if you have some questions.

Hey byzkit! I've never used either rom as I don't have your device. Generally flashing roms is pretty simple. Also one of the great things about being rooted is that you can try different roms easily. According to the instructions for your device that I posted it seems pretty much like any other. The simple broken down instructions :

Download rom
Place on sd card
Boot into recovery
Make backup
Wipe data
Wipe cache and dalvik
Install zip from sd
(the zip being your rom)

That's mainly it.

If you hate the new rom, boot back into recovery and restore the backup you made!
