    Not sure what you mean by "bottom row"...you mean the tray? I think you would need a different launcher like Nova to get rid of the tray.
    As for getting rid of home screens...if you pinch 'in', you will zoom out to show all your home screens in miniature. From there you can drag individual home screens to the little trash can icon and delete them...or more if you choose.

    It's called the Dock. You'll need to install another launcher to really be able to tweak it . I use Nova Launcher. It's regarded by many as the best but thats a personal choice.

    For example, I have Nova setup so when I swipe up with one finger it toggles the Dock open or closed. Swipe up with two fingers it toggles the notification bar open or closed giving me more screen space.

    Go to the play store and download the free versions of apex and Nova Launcher (or others) to get an idea of what you can do.

    Here's a thread that may help you a little.

    I luv'd ADW EX. Used it for over a year. When I got my GS3 I tried Apex, Go and Nova. Went with Nova I wish Nova had the option to change the Dock style like ADW does
