This is just the way the developers code the positions for the template. I would advise against changing them.

If you are referring to a site URL then that is different.

You can enable SEF and URL rewriting in the Global Configuration for Joomla. You will most likely have to rename the htaccess.txt file on the server to .htaccess though for this to work.

Are you just trying to get rid of the /index.php from the URLS?

I am still not 100% sure what your trying to accomplish then.

Change the menu item alias in joomla to something different and it will change the output in the URL bar.
