    Yes, but you will have root and install a custom recovery first. I also recommend you make a nandroid backup after installing the new recovery and before making any other changes. Check out the all things root guides for instructions.

    I already have root and a custom recovery installed
    Edit: can I just flash the kernel or do I have to download the stock rom with the kernel?

    You can download a kernel separately from a ROM.
    However you will need to find a kernel that is compatible with your screen drivers (which are most likely hitachi screen drivers)
    And the only kernel I know of for stock ROM is I believe Picasticks revamped or whatever. It is coded to run for both screens.

    The stock kernel doesn't let you overclock past 600Mhz. When you launch SetCPU with a stock ROM/Kernel, the maximum overclock you can set is 600Mhz, which is stock.
