    Depends on what your device is. Kernels aren't cross-device portable, so in order to recommend a kernel, I would need to know what your device is. That said, the default CyanogenMod 10.1 kernel is pretty good. Probably the only reason to switch to a custom kernel (I'd still recommend one based on CM10.1 sources) would be for zRam or swap which, IIRC, the stock CM10.1 kernel doesn't support (on some devices, at least), or if you want a custom governor (I prefer Smartassv2 governor, for balanced battery and performance).

    Is that this LegacyXperia ROM (mango build)? If so, that rom uses a custom kernel based on nAa's 3.4.x kernel source, which is the latest and best kernel for your device, IMHO. Unless you're experiencing issues with the default kernel (eg. random reboots, overheating, etc.), it's probably best to stick with it. If you're feeling adventurous, though, you could try out nAa's original 3.4.x kernel or other kernels based on it, or nAa's 3.0.8 kernel (which is reportedly smoother than 3.4.x, but development has stopped in favor of the 3.4.x builds).

    Regarding governors, this thread has some fairly detailed explanations about what each of the popular governors do. For the nAa kernel on your Mini Pro, the SmartassV2 and SmartassH3 governors are supposedly buggy (I can't personally verify as I don't have the device), so your best bet is probably the Interactive or InteractiveX governor. Set the min frequency to something like 480 (you don't get any significant battery savings when you go lower than that). Max frequency depends on whatever is stable on your device. Slowly ramp up the max frequency until you reach a setting you like, just make sure that "Set on boot" is NOT checked at least until you've tested your device on that frequency for a couple of days. That way you'll be able to avoid boot loops if you overclock too high. Be aware that you may not be able to overclock to 2GHz or whatever other people report as stable on their devices. Every phone is different even if they're the same models: what is stable for them may not be the same on your phone, even if your phones are the same model.

    Isn't the Kappa Kernel for ICS only? At least, that's what the thread title implies. While there's a possibility that kernels built for ICS may work on CM10/10.1, I wouldn't personally take the risk.
