So in the end you want urls without id for forums and members as well as the virtual folder trick ?

etc ...

For groups, id removal is not supported, but you can use group-name-gxx.html instead.

All you need to do is to activate the option in ACP (in the phpBB SEO category).
The option you need for this are, forum id removing, virtual folder, Profiles and groups injection, and Profiles ID removing. Please not though that profile id removing really is meant for when you do only accept alphanumeric characters in your user's nicknames (it's an option in acp), otherwise, keeping the id is safer.

You can have profile url such as : if you activate Virtual folder Profiles.

And as well if you activate Common Search and User messages pages rewriting.

All these option implies different settings in the .htaccess, the .htaccess generator (still in acp, phpbb seo cat) will do the work for you, but you'll need to generate it after you have made or updated you settings.
Do not forget that if you go from one type of url to another on a live forum, you most likely need to do something to take care of the redirections required to keep your current indexing.

On a new install, all you need to do is testing, preferably on a local test server, the possibilities offered by the mod until you come up with something you like.

For the template matter, you need to implement the code changes in your templates and clear phpBB's cache once done. The code change in overall_header.html is the one that will put your them back ;)

About the 404s, have you tried to generate and put in the right place a new .htaccess now that you seem to have configured your urls ?

Since it's working for topics, it should not be a problem for other links, you just need the correct .htaccess for your current settings.
