I kind of solved the first problem by running:
for i in *; do echo "OnlyShowIn=KDE;" >> $i; done
in /usr/share/applications/kde

This should get rid of most of the KDE entries in the Gnome menu and if
you want to have a KDE app in the Gnome menu, just delete the line, or
comment it out. Not perfect, but still better than editing everything
by hand.

About the trash desktop file, yes, that's annoying. However, if you use
the trash applet in kde you don't really need it and can delete it, at
least I did.
