It would be nice to be able to use lineageos. Your security patch level is old. 

How can I use a custom ROM with atom?

You can unlock the bootloader easily enough, but I don't think there is any custom ROM built for Atom yet.

To unlock bootloader:
Enable developer mode by tapping on Build Number 7-10 times.
Go to developer options.
Enable USB debugging and oem unlocking.
Connect to a computer with adb
Accept the prompt on the phone screen
Type adb devices to ensure it the atom appears and there are no permissions issues
Type adb reboot bootloader
Once rebooted (should say "FASTBOOT MODE..." on the phone)
Type fastboot devices, ensure phone shows up
Type fastboot oem unlock

This will put the phone into "orange mode" always warning you that the bootloader has been unlocked at startup

To take it out of orange mode, make sure you haven't flashed a new bootloader, and do the reverse (fastboot oem lock)
