Is there a doc/wiki page which explains, the  kind of
domu images/appliances/kernels can be run with what
type of dom0 kernels(xen_caps).

For example :
-- Can a 32 bit, non-PAE domU run on 64 bit, PAE dom 0
in PV mode ? (or HVM mode ?)

Are there any checks that can be done before doing the
migration ?

Is there any programmatic way (from python) to find
out  if the kernel in a domU disk image is 32bit/64
bit/PAE/non-PAE/PV/HVM ?i.e. can I generate xen_caps
like string from the kernel ?
