so your desire s is s-on unlock.
the steps are
1. full wipe except sd card
2. flash rom
3. flash gapps
4. optional - flash beats and fix permission (u dont have to do this unless you want to,i usually just skip this,my mp3 are low in quality and my headphones are cheap)
5. reboot into fastboot - flash boot.img
6. reboot phone

more details can be found here.

cheers

edit : do make a nandroid backup just incase u wish to go back to the old rom.
rmb to backup your sms,contact,apps,games,data,etc

Every rom has built in kernel (boot.img) no need to worry. Just follow instructions above.
