Yes, it absolutely is possible, and I've done it dozens of times. For heimdall do:
heimdall flash --kernel ./boot.img
It will upload and your phone will reboot. You'll have the yellow triangle since you flashed an unofficial kernel, but it will absolutely work. You do not have to create a flashable zip or anything, just use the raw boot.img file.
