QtQuick for rendering it's UI, that is unrelated to compositing.
Now you mention that your intel graphics driver freezes the whole
system. I'm using Intel on all my systems and it's the most used driver
out there. We get many, many, many bug reports in KWin about issues.
Freezing systems has not been in the list for now something like two
Given that I am very certain that you have a hardware issue where people
can help you with. Intel GPUs are good enough to run the Plasma session
without any negative impact.
So let us help you fix your issues that you can enjoy our work without
having to spend time on writing your own shell.
First thing: are you using the xorg-modesettings driver? If not: install
