Easiest way I can think of is to drag a link/shortcut into your home dir and execute that from konsole after su'ing.
Well, that's the next thing :)
You could have a look at the KDE Menu editor to see
how (using which commandline) a tool is being invoked.
But really, the vast majority of the stuff there shouldn't
be run as root anyway.
Also, depending on how the KDE was installed in your
distro of choice, KDE will most likely prompt you for the
root password anyway if it's required or you'll see an
"administratior mode button" which will use kdesu to run
the task, e.g. when you're in control centre and modifying
the login manager settings
