    Yes, kernels would be applied the same way as a ROM. Remember to do a nandroid backup before flashing though, just to be safe.

    Icecold is right, do a backup before flashing just in case and they are flashed just like a rom. As a rule i would follow whatever instructions the dev has for installing them, doing that will result in less headaches. Also from experience you cant go from kernel to kernel in some cases without flashing stock kernel first, good example of that would be going from genocide kernel v. 2 to twilight kernel as it would cause fc issues. Hope that helps:)
