112Kbps with HeadAC3he. Higher for concerts, etc. (160kbps or 192Kbps )
All Dolby Surround 2

I am usually doing my audio in TMPGEnc at 128. I will go to 192 if the source was high and it is music.

However, I have done extensive testing and encoding with MP3 files for pure music. I have found an audible quality loss at 112 that is hard to hear at 128. It has seemed pretty universal regardless of the encoder.

(I had OK luck with LAME 3.92 using 112 with VBR encoding and several custom switches... but only on my MP3 player. It sounded a bit hollow tinny out of my stereo or computer.)

If there is nothing but dialog (i.e. Glenn Gary Glenn Ross) then you could possibly get away with 96 but there would be potential hissing at decent volume and any lound bass would sound possibly distorted if you have any low end on your home theater sound system.

If you do go below 128 then your only chance to get decent quality is using HeadAC3he (or some other high quality encoder).

I will live with a little bigger file and save the steps outside TMPGEnc.

112 Usually.
96 if I need just a bit more room to cram a film on a single disc.
160 for music.

I use 128 but go to 112 if video is larger then expected.

Do you lose a lot of quality going from 128 to 112 because I would always like to improve the video whenever possible

Usually 192.

I don't want massive quantities per DVD, I want quality.

Nope
KVCDs are burned as non standard VCD or SVCD disk structure. VCD/SVCD specifications only support .mp2 audio. So AC3 and DTS are out of the question for any (K)(S)VCDs.
