You can do this to some extent using the -p command which allows properties to
be overridden for a new Konsole instance.  The keys/values accepted by -p are
the same as those stored in the Konsole settings (.profile) files in

You can use the --title and --icon arguments to control the title and icon.

For example:

konsole -p colorscheme=BlackOnWhite -p TabBarMode=0 --title "My Application"
--icon <path to icon or name of icon>

The major omissions from the list you mentioned are direct equivalents for
--vt_sz, --fg and --bg (although for the latter two you can specify the name of
one of the color schemes that ships with Konsole if they are close enough using
-p colorscheme=<name>)
