Without saying anything about Leap 42.2's default plasma desktop,
just a list of questions. I have Leap 42.2 with deafult KDE desktop
(plasma 5?):

-desktop panel: how to see hight in pixels?

That info was removed. What you can do as a workaround: let's say you want the height to be 32 pixels, open some app like Dolphin, click on the Window's settings menu button (top-left), go to More Actions, Special Window Settings, click the Size radio button and enter the vertical screen size minus the panel height you desire. OK the dialog. Position the application to the top of the screen. Now adjust your panel height to the bottom of the application. You could also use the KRuler utility but I'd say that's more fiddly.

-how to set start menu: most frequently used application?
(not favorites and recently used)

Feature only just added to most recent Plasma release. Not sure if that will be in Leap 42.3. You'd have to switch to the relevant KDE repo.

-how to disable KDE wallett service window popping up
(eg. every time after vivaldi startup)

Depends on your circumstances. If you're willing to compromise on the security aspects you can select the classic blowfish method, click Next and set to a blank password. But obviously not a good idea if you want to prevent anybody ever accessing personal data or passwords in KWallet-protected apps on your machine.

-where is screen saver settings? (not screen locker)

Screen savers were removed a few releases ago. In part due to being deemed irrelevant by today's demands of power-saving, etc. The one things you can still achieve with current Plasma, under that Screen Locker section, is the setting of a wallpaper slideshow which effectively acts like a screensaver as soon as the screen locks.

-plasma system settings - search field: where is clear search
field button?

I don't know what you mean exactly - a global search within System Settings? In mine, it's right there top-right when you open it. But it's misleading, not technically a search, it's more of a filter, so there's no need for a button since if the term you search for exists it highlights the settings categories below that contain it.

-kde5/plasma5 system settings: help/about doesn't show version number,
why, how do I get it?

Under Help -> System Settings -> Version tab. Or open the KInfocentre for KDE Plasma/Frameworks versions.

-how to disable the menu button at the right edge of the bottom panel?

Lock widgets.

-panel add widgets looks very ugly - very wide column at the left edge
of the screen with HUGE ugly icons and big fonts - is this normal?

You'd have to show us a screenshot.

For some other questions, a screenshot or more info required.
