Welcome! bekiko.
I think that should root easily enough once the rot has been removed. Just keep it dry and always use a well draining mix for succulents.

After you cut all rot away to firm growth. Leave it naked in a warm, dry place till it scabs over. A week or two. Then plant.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.
