Supporting new platforms

I've been messing around a bit with the android source. I'm not sure
if this is better to ask in the android porting group, but it seems
noobish so I thought I'd ask here. I was wondering if there's a
comprehensive(ish) guide somewhere to adding new vendor
configurations? It seems like there's a lot involved in this (the
lunch command, putting various files in the /vendor directory, etc.)
that I can't find a lot of documentation for.

There's lots of "porting" tutorials that require you to check out
basically a fork of a particular android branch thats been made for a
particular platform, but that isn't really -porting-, thats just
checking out someone else's port.

1. How to gracefully terminate a remote service process?

Currently I believe I'm doing a ok job managing my application's remote 
service. When I'm done using it I can see the onDestroy() called, perfect...

Now the issue is I can see the remote process still{*filter*} around, via DDMS 
or via phone's running processes. Users see this and think I'm doing stuff 
on the background etc... blaming my app and than asking for an exit 
button... Truth is they don't need an exit button!

So my question:

    How to gracefully terminate a remote service process?

I could get the PID and kill it but something tells me this might not be the 
nice way to do this since the service might be restarted again...

Any help would be greatly apreciated!
