    For what purpose would this compiled kernel be used?
    Did you solve the command line exporting and importing problem in your previous thread?

    Download the kernel sources from in the version you want. Extract the archieve to a folder and then do whatever you want to do.
    The Gentoo Wiki has some basic overview to get startet. However be aware that you should know what you are doing before using a custom kernel in production. If you want to learn that process in depth Gentoo is a good way of learing such things.
