I have had similar problem (all my Konsoles started in ~/Documents or 
somewhere instead of ~). I have changed path in System Settings → Account 
Details → Paths.

Perhaps there is better way, but this is the best I had found.

Do you mean the (in)famous cashew logo? In upper right corner on this 

It is there by default. I think that there are some ways to remove it, but I 
have never really cared that much to try.

If not, could you provide screenshot showing what do you mean?

All configuration is in ~/.kde/, especially ~/.kde/share/config/
Removing (renaming) that directory will make KDE create new with default 
values on startup. But please note, that there are also configuration files for 
other KDE-related apps, like Kmail or Konqueror. You may wish to delete only 
specific files (or delete all but some specific files).
