I have an e10i, I love it, and following the instructions of this forum I managed to flash custom roms and I'm extremely happy with CM7 2.2.2
But yesterday I read that this ROM supports nAa .32 kernel and I'm wondering if it's worth it to flash this kernel (since I read it is intended for newest androids) will this kernel improve the mobile performance with CM7?
And in affirmative case, how do I flash it over nAa .29? Directly over the old kernel? Should I wipe everything before? Is there any way to don't loose all my mobile data and settings?

Thanks in advance
You can just flash it over the old kernel and it will work. You will only lose data if you flash different ROMS not different kernels. (ofcourse, don't do the recommended formats for the new kernel, because they destroy your data)
In any case, perform a backup in CWM first, so you can restore it in case anything goes wrong.
It will be a little bit faster, but on the other hand, you will most likely loose bluetooth capabilities, because the .32 kernel has a few issues with that. So just try, and if you're not happy, you can always flash .29 again
