If I understand correctly, you're currently on a ROM and wish to flash a different because the kernel changed?

If so, you can reflash the ROM your currently on and restore the original kernel. Make sure to wipe cache/dalvik/system (you don't have to wipe data) then relfash your ROM. You don't have to wipe data if flashing the same ROM you're currently on. If switching to another ROM, make sure to wipe everything except internal SD card (data/cache/dalvik/system).
