Default Samsung Continuum Questions

Hey guys, I have a few questions that I either couldn't figure out after researching for hours (seriously) or I just need some clarification on. I apologize if these questions have already been adressed. Also, I'm new to android so try to keep it simple for me.
1. What is a kernel? Can I flash multiple kernels to the same rom? Can I flash a kernel via clockwork recovery?
2. Ive been having problems with clockwork recovery. I got it installed (meaning I can get to the clockwork recovery menu after flashing the .tar file via odin and applying the update.zip) but if I select any of the items from the clockwork recovery menu the screen immediately goes blank and I have to perform a battery pull to boot the phone up again.
3. Clockwork recovery doesnt stick. When I apply the update.zip (which contains clockwork recovery mod) from the regular recovery menu I get a "e:verification whole-file error" message thingy unless I flash the .tar file via odin every single time before hand in which case I do get to the clockwork recovery menu, but the problem from the question above occurs.
4. How to flash the latest clockwork recovery + any needed kernel + any bug fixes + latest version of needed files? Plz post a link to a place where I can download the appropriate files. I ask this even though its been asked before because im wondering if the files I used are outdated and thats why I had the problems mentioned above.
5. Is there anyway I can restore my phone back to the way i first bought it (meaning no root, no update, etc.)
Thanks in advance!

The only one I can answer out of those is #5 (I suck at the coding part lol, I'll let someone more knowledgable answer those)

Go to settings -> Privacy -> Factory Data Reset.

Pretty sure that's what you're looking for

You're having weird problems. My clockwork doesn't stock either but I don't think anybody's does with the continuum. I have a clean DL17 ROM, the peanutbutta jelly time kernel and I haven't had any problems

Ill try again later on today and ill see what happens. Maybe it was just a one time glitch. Are you supposed to select the items from the clockwork recovery menu using the camera button or the menu button?
On a separate note, about the clockwork recovery sticking, i heard about a kernel that made it stick. True or false? And if I install a kernel on my phone now, and then flash the DL17 rom, do the effects of the kernel now apply to the DL17 rom as well? does the clockwork recovery mod that i flashed before also apply to the DL17 rom as well, or do i have to reinstall clockwork recovery? what bugs does the DL17 rom have? where are the fixes?

Can someone please post a link of this thread in the continuum android development section or point this thread to a dev because I don't have permission and I really badly want these questions answered! Thanks!

I'll try and answer some of your questions as soon as I get to a computer.

Sent from my space time Continuum using the XDA App.

EDIT:
1. I'm not a dev, but here is what I understand about kernels. A kernel is part of android that contains the "drivers". You can use different kernels with the same ROM, but if you're asking if you can use 2 kernels at the same time with 1 ROM, then no, you can't. Kernels are usually flashed with clockwork, but we continuum users also use ODIN because of the difficulties with CWM not wanting to work on some phones.
2. Are uoi using the menu button to select in CWM? If you are, try clicking the lock button instead.
3. I can't help you there, sorry. :-/ My CWM always worked...
4.I'll see if I can't find a guide or 2. I'll make another video tut if needed.
5. There is a stock ODIN file that I helped make floating around here somewhere. The only thing is, the ODIN is rooted because it was needed to create the files.

I'll answer more questions later :P
