Yes, The "vermagic" must be full match.
Usually, the different kernel have different vermagic.

Is there other VPN apps that this can be tried with instead of OpenVPN?

It should work with anything that wants a TUN or TAP device.

FWIW, I can openVPN with it just fine.

I've insmodded tun.ko on my rooted file, but had no luck with the openvpn apps from the market. Could please someone point me to a working one (openvpn or pptp)? Do I need to have busybox installed? (I just have my device rooted)

You do need busybox. I'm on the CM7 rom as well, which includes both busybox and the openvpn binary. I then use the OpenVPN Settings app from the market to connect to the VPN. Make sure you go into advanced settings and set the path to the tun.ko module and tell it to load it. Or manually load it some other way. The config files I set up a long time ago just using adb shell on my phone and copied them and the keys to the fire's SD card. The tun.ko came from this thread.

If I install CM7 on the Kindle Fire, do I still need these drivers, and do these drivers still work?
