The CentOS 6 kernel is a 2.6.32-xxx.y.z.el6 one. And CentOS/RHEL 2/6/32 is massively different to a vanilla 2.6.32 from kernel.org.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
CentOS 6 goes EOL sooner rather than later, get upgrading!

Is that a confirmed fact or a faulty interpretation?

I see no reason to touch 2.6.30 this day and age, unless you are conducting archaeological research.

2.6.30 is only 10 years old. What could possibly go wrong?

No, because you'd have to download and build it for yourself and that's a topic that's not suitable for this forum as it's too complicated. You'll also probably be the first person ever to do it.

Feasibility is irrelevant.

You have presented no reason to even think about it. "I must" is not a reason.
