HELP REQUEST: U.S. OS on Chinese Phone

Hello Everyone,

This is my first time posting here, and I'm not particularly familiar with mobile firmware or operating systems.

I'll begin with a short explanation: I recently moved back to the U.S. from China, and brought with my a Huawei 6 Plus. Yes, since I'm in the U.S. I am now free to install Google Play and other region specific software - but what I really want is to be rid of the Huawei user interface and the China/Huawei specific applications that are built in and cannot be uninstalled.

I'm open to installing older versions of Android, or even custom operating systems if there are any the more experience of you might recommend - I just have no idea how to do it. Is there a risk of bricking the phone? Are there differences between changing operating systems on this phone BECAUSE it is foreign hardware?

Any help that could be provided would be greatly appreciated.

Best,
JM
