Default [Q] Kernels needed for to flash roms?

Kernels are just needed for recovery? Or they're needed for ROM? I checked all the posts but I am confused, i am new to these stuffs.
I am about to flash SlimKat right now but I don't know what to do? Flashing rom is very easy but the previous part about kernel stuff mad me confused

I have unlocked bootloader and XDualRecovery. Can I flash this rom with these stuffs?

The answer is in your question....

Custom kernels require unlocked bootloader

If you are still unsure, watch this.

understand!

thanks
i thought it was only for custom ROM

I somewhat knew this from a long time ago but I've forgotten. Its been a while since I got a new phone

also as I remember, they force u to unlock bootloader thru SONY so that warranty cant be claimed, mainly afraid of people who OC CPU and GPU which can damage the device (which is reliant on custom kernel)
