Sure I wili ladd it to the first post
So far you need to flash the kernel via Fastboot by executing this command:
fastboot flash boot boot.img (if you are using test 1)
fastboot flash boot boot_Test2.img (if yo uare using test 2)

No my friend, root doesn't enable you to flash a custom kernel.
You must unlock your bootloader.
Rooting is a different process.
This kernel roots the phone (if using test 2) so don't worry about root
