I have one question though, after installing the CF-Root kernel that corresponds to my Firmware version, can I flash the latest CF-Root kernel without flashing a new ROM?
No, the CF-Root kernel corresponds to the firmware and kernel your phone is running. There is no reason to flashing a later CF-Root kernel as this would conflict with your firmware.

In addition, when flashing a ROM, does it come with it's own kernel?
All ROM's come with their own kernel and, unless it is a stock Samsung ROM, you will stay rooted.
