My current kernel version on with my OS running on is 3.2.0.

Can I compile a kernel of version 2.4.0 on it?

Is there any perfect kernel documentation available? (As I see different ways of compiling kernel, expecting a unified documentation which lists all possible ways)

The lowest Kernel version available for Ubuntu 12.04 is 3.2.0-23 as you can see at the Ubuntu Package webpage:

So you can't install it in the 12.04 as it's not supported.
