I'm not sure what you are asking. You can either
* Pass arguments to your existing kernel on boot (through the grub
command line), or pass them to modules when they load:
* You can change some settings of your existing kernel at runtime
through /sys and /proc/sys (I didn't find useful online docs for
that right now)
* You can recompile your kernel and change lots of things (but
then it is not your "existing" kernel anymore)
