Hello I am using Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS and have also used Arch Linux and Kali Linux both of which were running Linux 4.7 Kernel and I have to admit that my laptop boots faster in the 4.7 Kernel and also it heats up less.

So where can find such a ppa for Ubuntu 16.04.1??

There is no PPA. Those need to be downloaded directly from: kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.7/. Mind that these DEBs are NOT supported by Ubuntu (the Ubuntu kernel team changes these to fit Ubuntu).

Download the DEBs appropriate to your system and install with ...

sudo dpkg -i linux*.deb

It is not guaranteed that in Ubuntu these 2 issues are fixed. I myself would stick to the other 2 OS's for now.
