Correct, so how is this done and where ? Once you figure that part
out you have what you need to do what you want to :)

Change into your source tree, look for this file:

Kconfig  is used by the KBuild system that menuconfig uses.

Look for the section:
config INET
bool "TCP/IP networking" <-- change bool to tristate, save and run make

Now you can ask menuconfig to build TCP as a module.

But... it may be better to if you can use:

One last thing, heed the warnings in Kconfig they are there for a reason.

Good luck and what exactly are you trying to do ? Am curious.
