Newbie question, custom builds/plugins (was: favorites)

A beginner's question:

Bubba's custom build looks totally cool, as does BlueChip's audio .rock -
but since Bubba's is a firmware, and the BC's .rock needs a custom
firmware, only one of them can be used at any time? Am I understanding the
terms correctly? Or is there a way to use both?

I like Bubba's reassigned buttons/menus for better (to me) access to
features, as the menu depth of some frequently-used features is my sole
complaint about Rockbox, but, damn, that additional audio control looks
like just what the doctor ordered, too.
