Hello,
it tells you wich kernel configuration flavour it has. The PAE version tells you that on this version, the PAE option is activated (Physical Address Extension, enables support of more than 4Go of RAM on 32bits systems) and XEN tells you that the XEN virtualization is activated.
Try to build your own kernel and read the documentation shipped with it, using the menuconfig (make menuconfig) to configure the kernel can teach you a lot of things on it.

PS: I forgot to tell about the smp option : Symmetric Multi Processing : Enables multi CPU/core support.

I don't use virtualbox nor centos, so I can't tell you why it doesn't work. Maybe there's some kind of compability problem with virtualbox and some kernel options.
However I don't know why you would want to especially use virtualbox on a Xen kernel, but for the PAE it's more annoying.

Someone else would have to answer that question. You should start a new thread for that.
