Ambitious goal, but you are getting ahead of yourself.
First I would say that you need solid programming skills in a language like C. (You should research and figure out what are the most common languages that Operating Systems and Kernels are written in. My guess is C would be the #1 hit.)
After you get that down, then you can look more into kernel development.
