Xterm is superseded by Konsole, which is already in the menu under Applications/System.

Konqueror already has an icon under Favourites, but is also under Applications/Internet.

As well, you can simply type Alt-F2 and begin typing kon... and a drop-down window will appear with possibilities. Just click on the one you want to launch.
