    I've never upgraded a xen-kernel. So maybe somebody can help how to do it.

    My goal is to have some iptable features which are only compiled in the kernel >= 2.6.14.

    What I would like to hafe is some iptable modules like the string rule.

    Did someone had picked up those experience and could give an howto?

    Yes, I have had a look on it :)

    But a bit afraid to change the whole kernel. I hoped there would be a solution for the kernel module to load.

    You can keep the old kernel and also the stanza for it in /boot/grub/menu.lst. If your new kernel doesn't work, you can boot into the old one.
