Hi:

I'm guessing that by "graphical menu" you're referring to the tool
bar.  You can turn that off with (tool-bar-mode -1).


As for the cursor, when I do
M-x apropos RET cursor RET
I get this:

,----

| blink-cursor
|   Variable: *Non-nil means blinking cursor mode is active.
|   Plist: standard-value variable-documentation custom-tag custom-type 
custom-set custom-requests

|   Variable: *Seconds of idle time after which cursor starts to blink.
|   Plist: standard-value variable-documentation custom-tag custom-type

| blink-cursor-end
|   Function: Stop cursor blinking.
| blink-cursor-idle-timer
|   Variable: Timer started after `blink-cursor-delay' seconds of Emacs idle 
time.
|   Plist: variable-documentation

|   Plist: variable-documentation

`----

I'm pretty sure your answers lie in the docs for one or more of these
variables.
