it's a good thing you added those but it would be better you add a clear "screenshot" of boot screen where the kernel hangs so that people here can look and see where the problem may be.

guessing that you need to configure graphics support in menuconfig and then recompile, recopy kernel.
reference: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Xorg/Configuration
for further help pastebin the output of lspci -k and identify the video card driver you wish to use. (fglrx, radeon, nv, nvidia, intel, ????)
