| Some, if not all of this can be done by setting up profiles

Thank you for the help! That works perfectly. Even a remote
connection can be done with a profile, with
"/usr/bin/ssh -X -l username remote.example.com" as its command.
(So, the notion of "session" of the old konsole
is absorbed in that of "profile", it seems.)
I may also explore your method of using a bookmark.

The result is curious. In
Settings > Configure Notifications
there is an item "Bell in Visible Session". If you set "Show a
message in a popup" for this item, you'll see a popup
when you type "echo -e '\a'". That means that this item is
indeed the bell we are talking about.
Unfortunately, I can't get it work. Nothing happens
if "Mark taskbar entry" is assigned to the bell.
Nothing happens, either, if "Run command" is assigned
and "/usr/bin/tput flash" is specified as its command,
even though the command itself works from the command
Maybe it's time to submit a bug report.
