KDE is a terrible environment: the KDE menu is not easy to copy and include in the menu used by other Window managers. Where can I find a list of the specific KDE app's appearing in the KDE menu to add them to the regular menu of other Window managers?

At the end ov every emerge you can see where the files are written to.
you can for sure analze the icons / menu settings of kde. there has to be a config files.
as i do not use kde anymore you have to look it up yourself
there used to be some predefined directories where apps are stored

KDE uses freedesktop.org's desktop menu specification like most other desktops. Desktop files are in /usr/share/applications (or ~/.local/share/applications). Most KDE applications are in a subdirectory "kde4", but that should not stop the desktops from showing them because the specification allows subdirs. The entries you are missing are most likely due to "OnlyShowIn=KDE;":

Code:
cd /usr/share/applications
grep -r -C 0  OnlyShowIn=KDE .
./kde4/krusader_root-mode.desktop:  45 :OnlyShowIn=KDE;
--
./kde4/Help.desktop: 104       :OnlyShowIn=KDE;
--
./kde4/kinfocenter.desktop:   7:OnlyShowIn=KDE;
--
./kde4/knetattach.desktop: 188 :OnlyShowIn=KDE;
--
./kde4/superkaramba.desktop: 196       :OnlyShowIn=KDE;
--
./kde4/kmix.desktop:   4       :OnlyShowIn=KDE;
--
./kde4/kfind.desktop:  98      :OnlyShowIn=KDE;
--
./kde4/Home.desktop: 194       :OnlyShowIn=KDE;
--
./kde4/systemsettings.desktop:   7     :OnlyShowIn=KDE;
--
./kde4/klipper.desktop: 190    :OnlyShowIn=KDE;
--
./kde4/kmenuedit.desktop:   7  :OnlyShowIn=KDE;


You could override these with files in ~/.local/share/applications/kde4 without that line.
