The du utility has the built-in ability to produce a total with the -c flag, so you could simplify the command to: sudo find /var/folders -name com.apple.IconServices -exec du -shc {} +

You won't need to log in to use VNC if you're running a recent version of OS X. If you enable VNC in the remote desktop settings, VNC clients are presented with a separate login screen from the one on the live monitor.

The only thing "useful" about app syncing is that you can preserve a specific version, if you need to do so. You'll always download the newest version from the App Store on a device. But I agree that in the vast majority of cases, app syncing isn't worth the hassle.

Macs will definitely boot without a keyboard, but you may get a dialog box at the login screen (to help you pair a bluetooth keyboard).
