If there is already a cabinet above where you want your range to be located then your solution is to either have a carpenter shorten the cabinet or replace it with a shorter cabinet that will give more breathing space to the range underneath it. Wiring is a consideration as well. A ductless range hood would require that you shorten the cabinet and do the required wiring before you install your range. Ducted kitchen range hoods are different and require an opening in the cabinet's bottom to accommodate the ducting. Another hole will be needed for the exhaust.
The problem is largest in an old house that may not have any type of exhaust system in the kitchen let alone a modern range hood. Many years ago, range hoods were not common so in an older home you may have more work to renovate.
The hoods that vent the air outside of the home are called vented hoods. They require a duct system that attaches to the range hood and is connected to an external wall within the home. These hoods are very easy to maintain as they don't have any filtration system that you need to clean or replace. They do have a grid type panel underneath that will need to be cleaned to remove any grease that clogs the small holes.
