Or do you recommend Hells Fusion #50 definitely.
Appreciate your feedback.
I see that you're a new user in XDA. First let me explain what a kernel is. It's a piece of software which links your hardware to the software whereas a ROM is the software.
In Hyperion 9's thread you read that it is based upon DXMJ firmware. It's the firmware which he has modified and made this great ROM. You can flash it over any ROM, including stock which you have got, except the CM ones if you follow the instructions correctly. You have to flash the RIL fix from Hyperion 8's thread to get the networks working if you change your kernel.
As for your kernel question it is sometimes better than stock because you get more freqs, govs and ioscheds to customize your performance, battery life, etc. It also enables support for init.d scripts which can be used to speed up your phone.
You can use any custom kernel of your choice and Hells Fusion #50 is not a bad choice.
Good Luck flashing.
