You will probably need to rebuild Linux with the new kernel.

Probably you need to update the kernel itself, not the version... :-)
Some distro provide a straightforward way to update, the same way as applications, not sure about Mint. Anyway, what's the problem? There is a lot of literature on this step...

On linux, you can typically update to the latest of any software on your system with
 
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
 
This mechanism gives you "the latest" but does not give you the opportunity to select which specific choice you get from a list of those available.
 
Google should be able to help you with details of removing obsolete kernel versions.
