    You would flash a kernel the same way you do a theme, no wipe except cache if anything.

    Yes. Custom ROMs will come with a kernel as part of the install package, but if you want a different one you will install it after you install the ROM.

    So something like this basically:
    1 - Reboot into recovery
    2 - Make backup
    3 - Wipe (may not be necessary, but I always like the idea of wiping before installing a new ROM)
    4 - Install ROM
    5 - Install Gapps if the ROM requires them
    6 - Install kernel, theme, extras.

    Personally I boot into the ROM after step 5, then once I get into the ROM, I reboot into recovery and install the theme and kernel. But that is just how I do things.
