I am not clear on the differences between the Livna version and the 
Fedora version.

# yum install kvm qemu

That will get both the kvm capable qemu (kvm) and the normal one.

As for the kernel modules, intel-kvm and amd-kvm are both part of the 
main stream kernel since 2.6.20.

What do the Livna versions offer?
