Sorry but I dont speak very well english.
1- If you are asking about "how to install a 4.4 custom ROM for your i9100, you need CWM 22.214.171.124 or 126.96.36.199, and the recovery can do the rest for you in terms of flashing and all.
2- If you are looking for a KitKat Compatible recovery, I would rather advise you doing some searching or simply googling "CWM-188.8.131.52-I9100.zip" and downloading it to your SD card in order to flash it.
However, the only way to install the new Kitkat based firmwares for the i9100 imply you to use the latest CWM (or TWRP latest) in order to have support for metadata, and if I didn't answer your question, simply be more specific (your current ROM, OS version, Kernel... etc)
