the kernel contains drivers and configurations for specific devices, replacing that alone would not make an attempted port work, you would also need to modify/replace certain library/binary files for most ports from the BLADE to work, and thats just to get it booting/working, other things that need changing would the build.prop, possibly framework for ldpi/mdpi (depending on rom) systemui.apk, settings.apk (for additional modding)..........porting from other devices other than BLADE will take alot longer to do as their internal working are different ie different hardware, rom file system layout slightly different..............

this pretty much explained it all :D ofc it would be somewhat easier if its aosp and you know programming, that way you can write/modify already existing code to make it work on certain device
you want to port something massacre?
