That's a big undertaking.. you might start by tweaking other ROMs first. I'm currently using xtrROM which seems to be the best of both worlds.

First off it's 2.1 with flash 10.1, most of HTC's sense is removed leaving only HTC's mail, clock, web browser, phone/contacts, and photo gallery.

I installed the 2.2 Android market.

I put back on the stock keyboard (I like the compact-qwerty keyboard best), but removed the HTC style lock screen and put on the standard Android lock screen.. which caused a problem with being able to turn off my alarm in the morning.. so I removed the HTC world clock suite and put the standard Android clock and now all is well.

I also found an app that lets you change the lock screen and even create your own plus you can cycle screens to have it change to a different lock screen each time you go to unlock your phone.

So you might want to "tweak" a bit first.. you will learn a lot about your phone that way.
