I like that skin too - it's been incredibly popular over the last few years.
Do you mean the height of the montage? I'm not 100% sure I understand what you mean by the question or the 'breadcrumb' called Home? I think that's what you must mean after reading this a couple of times.
Look for the CSS file that has the name - breadcrumb and change the font size of it. That will give you larger text on the word 'Home'.
In reference to the terms and privacy links - you would have to either add a pane to the skin or hard code the links into the skin file and then it would keep the look and feel of the site in place when logged in.
In reference to the links module - there is in fact a skinobject called 'links' which, when placed on skins renders the links / menus - but you have to add to skin and it does have to be displayed 'vertically' to render as you want.
There is also the left hand menu from inventua.com which allows you to display menus and style it accordingly.
I hope this helps.
