This is where all Fedora kernels are born:
If you download an rpm, you can install it with dnf -C [kernel package],
*providing* that its dependencies are met on your Fedora version.

This is how to compile a kernel from the src.rpm found at the above

I don't do it that way since I've been doing it for a while, and have
learned an alternate way that used to be suggested.  

But, that said, are you sure you need to do this?  I don't run multiple
monitors, but if you give some specifics, it might turn out that
someone else can suggest a boot configuration or X configuration
adjustment that will work.
