I think the sidebar can be saved in the view profile, but that might be in the 
upcoming version, not the currently released ones.

You can add the file to the bookmarks.

The trash handling will be replaced (I think in KDE 3.4) by a new 
implementation according to a cross-desktop standard specification.

KDE in general and especially Konqueror got lot of critique for having too 
many options in the context menus, so some got removed.
I don't know if it would be possible to re-add the find action into the menu 
by modifying the XML GUI file of Konqueror.

It should be possible to add a servicemenu entry for inode/directory that 
calls kfind.

Sounds like a bug.
Could you check bugs.kde.org and file one if it isn't already there?
