Falling Down the Custom ROM Rabbit Hole

I have a rooted Samsung Galaxy S 4g (model t959v) running Gingerbread. I need assistance with learning about custom ROMs, could you point me in the right direction please?

For various reasons I want to install a different ROM on my phone but I'm almost a total noob at this sort of thing. In order to avoid bricking my phone, where would you guys recommend I look for reliable, clear, concise info? The places such as XDA-Developers seem too advanced for me -- what's Nandroid? What's a kernel? So I tried Lifehacker, they recommended I start with Cyanogenmod, but from what I can tell my particular phone model is not supported
. Is there a list somewhere of the ROMs that are supported by my phone? I found this
but whoa, is it really that complicated, should I just forget it? Mostly I just want to remove all the bloatware that came with my phone. I keep getting notices that my system memory is low. Many thanks in advance.
