KDE has its own keyboard module, which makes use of X's keyboard
module xkb. however, KDE runs xkb with its own settings *after* X has
run xkb, so KDE's settings override the X config. you can disable this
in the control panel, section input devices/keyboard.

have you read the man page? it may be a bit terse for newbies, but all
necessary info is in it, i think.

this is a KDE issue: if you log into KDE as root (or maybe if you do
kdesu or whatever it's called) you can add a wm to the list KDM shows
you. don't know the details, though.
