vCenter is different entity which isn't a hyper-visor, so it doesn't have vmkernel, vmkernel is the heart of ESXI hypervisor which handles all important network, storage and compute functions on ESXI. For deep understanding, please refers to vSphere Documentation Center

Whatever the tasks ESXI host is doing to run and manage the virtual machines running on it is called host managemen. when you install esxi hypervisor you configure storage, network, compute settings etc.. so that your virtual mahine can fulfill are their requirement. That’s what host management....
