I'm not sure you are asking what you want. If you want to leave a
memory empty, don't program it.

Depends on what you want. If you want to TX a tone and have no receive tone:
Tone Mode: Tone
Tone: {the TX CTCSS tone}

If you want to TX and RX with the same tone:
Tone Mode: TSQL
ToneSql: {the TX/RX tone}

The link for section 6 on this page has some guides and references
including some CHIRP "column" guides.

Depends. See above comment and guides.

> Q? Where do I put the 203.5 from kenwood QT/DQT Dec & QT/DQT Enc in Chirp?

Depend on if you want to TX the tone only or if you want to TX and RX
with the same tone. See above.
