Whoa...

Well, I don't mean anything rude by this, but it seems you want to do stuff you aren't yet capable of (or aren't really going to have a good time with). However, I'll see if I can answer them as best as possible:

1.

Normally the kernel's config files are located in /usr/src/kernel-version
2.

I'm assuming you mean, within bash, how would you modify the kernel. You will need root privileges, so as always, be VERY careful, and login as root:
su -
Enter root's pass, then:
cd /usr/src/kernel-version
And:
make menuconfig

And go from there.

Good Luck!

Cool
