'kernel-3.6.10-4.fc18' : That's the release version. ( Dec 2012.)
The current version is 'kernel-3.8.3-201.fc18', which is what you get with :
# yum install kernel kernel-devel

I.e. 'kernel-devel' provides files needed for compiling a driver / a module.

There is no binary package "kernel-source".
There is a kernel-3.8.3-201.fc18.src.rpm, which is linux-3.8.3.tar.bz +
the "100" files required to build "kernel-3.8.3-201" packages.
