Building Android from source? Answered

I am planning on building Android from source from AOSP for my phone. I went through all the stuff and procedure. 

Update: My device under consideration is Asus Zenfone C (ZC451CG),  While going through this process do I have to worry about kernel compatibility issues. My phone is currently running 4.4.4 kitkat, and I am going to compile marshmallow 6.0 for it. Will the drivers be compatible with the later.  


The following link attaches to the software site of my phone with firmware, source, kernel and other stuff. Just provided if you wanted to see
http://www.asus.com/in/Phone/ZenFone_C_ZC451CG/HelpDesk_Download/

This is my first time doing it, so any help is deeply appreciated. :D

Don't worry about the performance of system or speed of internet, they are ample.

This is a HUGELY difficult project.

IF you have the programming skills to do it then you should be able to answer your own questions.

If you don't have the right skills then ....... perhaps you are answering your own questions.

Sure is a difficult one, I am doing this to get a bit deeper into android ecosystem, I did actually not write the most important part, I updated the question so now lets do it all over again. Sorry about that

How exactly would we know if you can do it?
In almost all cases people use an existing Rom to modify it, I have never seen anyone doing it from scratch.
How do you plan to integrate all the functions, address the hardware and so on?

I am not writing android but compiling and thus building into an .iso or .zip file it from source which is available from Android open source project, I should have been more specific. I updated the question :D,

All mobile device manufacturers do it(compiling android). I have a problem with how the drivers are distributed in my stock ROM
