I am not an editor expert, but perhaps I can be some help.

Not certain what you mean here.  You can change the keyboard shortcuts
in KATE the same way as you can in any KDE app.  I am even less of an
expert here since I don't usually use keyboard shortcuts.  I presume
that you have found:

	Settings -> Configure Shortcuts

There is probably some documentation on this in general KDE 
documentation, but don't know where exactly.

I presume that you found the functions in: Tools.

If you want to do something other than highlighting with the mouse and 
using the functions, it is possible that using the command line tools 
might be more efficient.

This sounds like a feature request.  A tool to cleanup white space is 
something which is missing.  As you have probably found out, search and 
replace with a regular expression is your only current option.
