Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
You have a Mid 2012 MacBook Air. This MacBook Air isn't compatible with Snow Leopard, and that's the reason why you are getting a kernel panic when you try to start up Snow Leopard.
In order to reinstall OS X, you can use that recovery volume or Internet Recovery (hold Command, Option and R keys while your computer is starting). Then, open Disk Utility, choose your hard disk at the top of the sidebar, go to Erase tab and erase the drive. Finally, close Disk Utility and reinstall OS X

You said that you have a backup from a MacBook Pro. Did you make it with Time Machine or another app? You can use it in your MacBook Air, if you want. What happens when you try to use it?

So you see the backup as a bootable volume when you start your computer, right? You have to restore the backup, not start from it. One of the Time Machine disadvantages is that the backup you make with Time Machine aren't bootable.
To restore the backup, start in Internet Recovery holding Command, Option and R keys while your computer is starting. Then, you will see an option to restore backups, so press it and follow the steps

Is there any chance of forcing a load of Snow Leopard onto a Mid-2012 MBA?
