You can easily create keyboard shortcut yourself:
- right click on "start" button
- select menu editor
- click on Utilities/terminal
- click on advanced
- type new shortcut
- click on save button

i use kmix for volume control. don't know how it handles if you happen to be using pulseaudio though.

To answer question 1, Tried Yakuake (http://yakuake.uv.ro/)? Default shortcut is F12. It's in the repos, the only terminal I use in KDE after discovering it a long time ago.

Most of the problem is solved, as a new problem emarged:
when I launch terminal, in my default profile, it enters in Document directory, though nothing such is mentioned in command!! any solution?

Change the work-path in the menu-editor (see procedure above).
save the new setting, logout, and login again to see it work.
