There is a setting for this, go to Settings -> Edit Current Profile -> Tabs. 
Check the 'Show 'New Tab' and 'Close Tab' buttons in tab bar' checkbox.  It is
not on by default because I want to encourage keyboard shortcuts to be the
default quick-access tool.

There is a bug report for that.  Again, I have nothing against it but the
keyboard shortcuts are much more extensive out of the box in KDE 4.  Having
said that, this is on the roadmap as a minor feature mostly for people used to
KDE 3.

This feature still exists and is available via the View menu or Ctrl+Shift+I
(monitor for Inactive) or Ctrl+Shift+A (monitor for Active)

> - Ability to send signals to tabs (like kill, when a process freezes)

If you want to close a tab, use File -> Close Tab.  If you want to kill the
current program, press Ctrl+C.  There are a small number of programs which
block Ctrl+C (eg. SVN's command-line client) - for these, the only option
currently is to open another tab and kill them manually using (killall <command
