The term ROM, which stands for Read Only Memory and really has very little to do with what a custom Android ROM actually is, can be confusing. A custom Android ROM refers to a phone's firmware, based on Google's Android platform. Users can install ROMs to change a device's appearance and behavior.

What is the difference between stock ROM and firmware?

A Stock ROM/Firmware is an official software that is designed by the manufacturer for a particular device. A Truly Stock ROM is one type that does not undergo any cosmetic/functional changes in the code by hardware manufacturer. E.g: Android running on Google pixel, Nexus phones.
