Well, I have have the zip file for CM10 on phone (download folder) and pc and explored it to find the boot.img file to extract to find out it is not there, not only that but I cannot seem to find a way via either my pc or file mgr apps (i.e. root file manager) to move both the cm10 zipfile and gapps zipfile to the root folder on my phone, so I am at my wits end and guess I am stuck with ICS which I really am not at all impressed with.

So basically I am beginning to believe that it is not really possible to do this

There are some stock kernels with recovery in the development section. Find them and read the OP. Flash them and then flash the zip via recovery. The zip can be anywhere, doesnt have to be the root folder.

Thanks so much for a little direction, found the recovery file that I need so that I can actually get into recovery mode. But, the one step I didn't see posted was do I unzip it on PC or phone before executing install.bat?

Install.bat? Could you redirect me to the post you used to download the recovery?
