Question
Asalamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatu

May Allah reward you for efforts to this site and elsewhere.

I would like to ask some questions about the recitation of the Quran by way of Khalaf an Hamzah.

Is it required to recite in this riwayah by stopping with Rawm and Ishmam or can I stop on a word ending with a kasrah, for example, without ar-Rawm, reading it like a sukun? If I read Sura Al-Mulk without Rawm or Ishmam and I stop at the end of the ayat and where people usually stop, would this be wrong?

I have read that when reciting by way of Hafs, stopping with Rawm and Ishmam is optional. Is this the way it is with all the Kufi reciters?

My last question is more general. Before I asked whether applying Rawm and Ishmam is optional in the recitation of Khalaf an Hamzah, but now I want to ask about any tajweed rule for which there is khulf. Is it allowed to apply such a rule sometimes and leave it at other times? Or is it that in one recital if I apply an optional rule once then I should apply it every where else?

For example, by the way of Hafs, can I end one ayah with Rawm and then read all the other ayat where Rawm can be applied without Rawm? Or in the way of Khalaf an Hamzah, would it be wrong to read a taa-marbutah and the letter before it with imalah where this is permissible and then later on read another taa-marbutah and the letter before it without imalah although it was permissible to make imalah? Or is there a requirement for consistency in these two example tajweed rules and in all others?

Jazakumullahu Khayran. May Allah grant you the highest level of Jannah.

It is not required to stop with Rawm or Ishmaam for Khalaf 3n Hamzah or any other reciter.  The normal way of stopping is with a temporary sukoon.  Having said that, Hamzah stops on words which have a letter hamzah in the middle or end in special ways depending on the vowel and whether the letter hamzah is at the beginning of the word or the end of the word.  This is pretty big subject which needs understanding and practice with a mastered teacher before you try to read the recitation of Hamzah. 

If I read Sura Al-Mulk without Rawm or Ishmam and I stop at the end of the ayat and where people usually stop, would this be wrong?
No this isn't wrong and allowed, but again you will have to observe the rules of the reciter Hamzah when stopping on a word which has the letter hamzah in the middle or the end.  Even if the letter hamzah is at the beginning of the word and is preceded by a wow or some other specific letters for example there are two allowed ways of stopping on it. 

I have read that when reciting by way of Hafs, stopping with Rawm and Ishmam is optional. Is this the way it is with all the Kufi reciters?
It is that way for all reciters Kufi and Basri and Shami and Mekki and Madani.  Stopping with Ar-Rawm or Al-Ishmaam is optional.

For example, by the way of Hafs, can I end one ayah with Rawm and then read all the other ayat where Rawm can be applied without Rawm?
Yes, this is allowed, as long as you understand fully when we can stop with Ar-Rawm and when we cannot.

Or in the way of Khalaf an Hamzah, would it be wrong to read a taa-marbutah and the letter before it with imalah where this is permissible and then later on read another taa-marbutah and the letter before it without imalah although it was permissible to make imalah?
Hamzah does not read with imaalah on the taa marbutah and the vowel on the letter preceding, that is Al-Kisaa'ee who reads that way.  In most cases this is required for al-Kisaa'ee but there are some combinations in which it is optional.  Usually when something is optional we read take one of the options and read our whole recitation at the time that way. 
Wa iyykum and may He give you the same.
