Shouldn't we treat this world like the garden of Eden and avoid the apple at all costs?

There are kernels like mopkang that say that they are for "all roms" does that mean that it would work on my gs3?

That's better.

No, you have to be careful to only flash kernels made for our device. I've never heard of that kernel, if you link it I can tell you for sure.

Additionally there are some specific to TouchWiz or aosp roms, you have to flash the correct one.

Kernels are based on the device. If you are using a touchwiz rom then flash a touchwiz kernel if using an aosp rom then flash an aosp kernel. now that aosp kernels (4.4.2 kernels) are now universal you can check out kernels from other s3 varients as long as the developers updated it.
