I've heard that there's this thing called custom kernel and it is required to make swapper work in a rooted device. What it is exactly and where can I find one for my device??

Custom Kernels are nothing but modified stock kernel. Its done in order to achieve some features which is not present in the kernel provided by Manufactures. You can find one for your device if anybody has created a custom kernel for your "device". Kernels are device specific too.
I have Note2 and it seems that the chip i have is faulty and i was advised to don't use custom kernels. so there is a way to know if the custom rom is using stock or custom kernel or in other words all roms are having custom kernels ?
