Newbies, for the most part, don't often run multiple distros on the same 
machine, and even less often have to resort to booting old kernels.  
When Mageia updates a kernel, it creates new entries with the full 
kernel name for the version it is replacing, but alters the existing 
entry for the replaced kernel in place.  So, as the initial install gave 
you a "Mageia" title entry for the installed system, this will always be 
set to the last installed kernel.  Also, Windows partitions are 
identified as such in the Mageia-generated titles.

I think you'd better provide a use case that demonstrates the problem 
you're trying to solve.
