    Go to xda-developers.com and do lots of reading on your model. Don't make a thread without doing lots of reading and searching because people there are sometimes strict. You can post on the noob threads there though.

    Probably not if you have updated recently. Verizon really likes to lock down their devices.

    Rooting isn't a problem and is fairly straight-forward. Won't be able to play pokemon Go.

    There are a few custom roms out there, if you like that sort of thing. Won't be able to play pokemon Go.

    There are some roms that are stripped down version of the official firmware, which is what I run. It removes most of the bloat, and still lets me play pokemon Go. The phone actually runs smoothly, it's great.

    There is no custom bootloader, though, so you cannot install stock android 7 (as far as I understand).

    All of these options are fairly straightforward. As long as you can follow a numbered list without deviation, you'll be able to do any of these.
