check THIS & THAT

flashing custom ROM(or kernel) won't help
don't do anything if you don't know what you are doing

You can click the + sign next to the incompatibility message to see why its incompatible with your device. Both apps you are referring to can be installed on my device so probably its related to your android version or it might be a country or carrier restriction.

I don't think flashing another rom will make those app compatible unless the incompatibility is caused by your android version. You should try to spoof your device id and device country first to see if you can install the app with a fake id.

No best rom/kernel discussion allowed in this forum. You have to try them and choose which one works best for you.

Refer to kernel thread OP for instructions on how to flash and use the kernel

So don't flash anything and make some reading first. Make sure you understand what you are doing when you flash stuff. If you are afraid to flash your phone, then you are not ready to do it.

EDIT: ok nw i have unlocked bootloader with rooted device ..i followed steps and everything is ok nw

but am just thinking about flashing the HD revolution rom...but i already have 5.5 with 4.3 android version that came already with the device so do i have to flash the rom? meaning will it differ in speed , battery life, cpu and gpu improvments or just stick with normal stock that i have?

try it for yourself and see.
take nandroid backup before you start - if you don't like HR rom, restore backup. Nothing to lose.

enjoy.

don't know about horn, but lots of bad feedback in play store about world war z not starting/crashing, so I don't think it has anything to do with your device.
