Visit cvs.debian.org and read instructions in

checkout it
editor config
dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc

Yes. You can make your own kernel-image packages, give them a higher
version and put it to the additional local packages. See config file.

Since the kernel has to meet some requirements, you better take the
config files of the existing kernel-image packages used by BFs and
modify them a bit.

We have support for this things. Please note that if you are going to
use a 2.4.x kernel, you cannot take the config from official kernel
images since the use another boot scheme (via initrd). Instead, you
would have to make a essentials-built-in configuration. Somewhere in my
people.debian.org/~blade directory is a config file which I used
succefully to build BFs with 2.4.9 (some months ago).

Heute kann man ja kaum noch eine AOL-CD aus dem Fenster werfen, ohne
jemanden zu treffen, der einen SuSE-Karton unter dem Arm trägt.
