Hello, all you need to know about Fedora's kernel regression tests is in this wiki: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_kernel_regression and Fedora Magazine article you linked. It's best if you execute those tests every time you update kernel (you have to reboot after installing the update) and use your FAS credentials (or anonymous mode) to submit test results.

kerneltest-4.15.iso (an image with test Fedora version) was only useful for a special day dedicated to testing 4.15 kernel, now you can run those test on currently installed system (kernel 4.15 is already available as a regular update for Fedora 27).

As for your issues on newer kernel, perform system update (run as root or admin dnf update -y) and if they still occur, describe them in a separate question and provide necessary hardware details (use inxi -Fz and copy what's relevant).

+Remember to update local version of tests from time to time: navigate terminal to kernel-tests directory and run git pull.
