If I have an unlocked bootloader, what is the process to root the Sony 4.3 ROM? I've read that it is significantly easier to root but haven't seen a step by step guide. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you. Will flashing that kernel wipe my device, or will I retain all my user settings/apps/data?

No, nothing will be wiped.
