Ask the red hat support that YOU DID BUY ? right
http://www.redhat.com/support/
a support contract IS A REQUIREMENT for RHEL 5 ( rhel5.6 is current) and RHEL 6

https://www.redhat.com/apps/store/desktop/


the steps are in the red hat docs
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/manuals/

but normally you just run the normal update
Code:
su -
yum update

Not sure about RHEL, but you can, with an undue amount of effort, install a Debian kernel in Fedora (or vice-versa). However, if you have to ask how, you shouldn't be doing it.

As for installing your own new kernel, once you've created the RPM,
Code:
yum localinstall <your-kernel-RPM>
should do the trick, as would
Code:
rpm -ivh <your-kernel-RPM>
