The SDK is just the toolkit (programs to compile and related functions) but it doesn't come with the source code for our phones - while an experienced programmer may be able to convert the gingerbread source from another device, that is more difficult than it might sound. So the short answer is, no, the only way to cook up a ROM for ANY phone is to have the source code (or a stable stock rom to use as a base, but no source means the changes will be mostly graphic alterations). We probably won't see gingerbread on the Epic for a long time... (Fingers crossed that I'm wrong, lol)

I use titanium backup and am now running the DK27 froyo build by noobnl. My question... How do I restore my e-mail accounts to the phone everytime without having to re-type them in? I've been flashing a rom every other day on average since I got the phone and it's getting REALLY old.
EDIT: Wow, this response was worded poorly, lol...
As far as I've seen, restoring data from a backup causes a lot of force close problems. The only exception (which I haven't tested myself) is app data for downloaded apps - I have read that Titanium Backup can restore just the data without subsequent problems... but we're talking about things like game progress (Angry Birds was the app discussed in the thread I saw), and as far as I know, restoring anything else (including system data) will cause problems

Custom kernel work can't really even begin until we have the source code, which usually drops shortly after the official OTA release... which raises the question, has this recent OTA update started coming to the rest of us yet? (I won't see the notification as I'm already on DK28)
