For some hardware, you just have to do that.  At least you do have
options for booting with special parameters to support your hardware,
rather than finding it simply can't be used.

That is where the boot parameters come from - when booting - the kernel
line.  If you boot using GRUB, then that's what you want to customise.
There isn't something else to have to fiddle with.

It is a once-only thing, generally (unless a future update necessitates
a change in operating parameters).  Once you've got a system working,
when you next update the kernel, it inherits the parameters.  You'd see
your grub.conf file has the parameters applied to the new kernel, too.
