The sidebar is stored in a file called Site.Sidebar. So you could edit 
that file, and remove the linking brackets, so "%sidehead% 
[[PmWiki/PmWiki]]" becomes:
%sidehead% PmWiki

Not sure what you mean by breadcrumb here. But you're looking in the 
right place. the .tmpl file will either contain it, or include a file 
which contains it. If you see lines like:
   <!--wiki:{$Group}.SideBar {$SiteGroup}.SideBar-->

That's including other files, in this case either {$Group}.SideBar (the 
current group), or if that doesn't exist, then Site.SideBar.

You're basically changing the skin, so that's where to look. 
PmWiki/SkinTemplates probably has much of the info you'll need.

Take a look under Cookbook/Menus, there's possibly a cookbook that does 
that. Or find a skin that has that feature and use that as a starting 
point. Possibly the Cookbook/ShowHide might help.
