The terminal position is problematic. "Usually" it will remember where it was last time it was used.
But if you ever open another terminal window, now that window will be the "last one" used.
I don't know if there is a way to force it to be in a certain position.

As far as having it automatically come up when you login, that's easy, at least 4 ways to do it come to mind. Probably the easiest would be to cd ~/.config/autostart

edit a text file here. Here is a template. Name it something like terminal.desktop (it must end in .desktop)

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Terminal
# Exec=/usr/bin/mate-terminal %U
Exec=/usr/bin/mate-terminal
Icon=utilities-terminal
Terminal=true
StartupNotify=false
Categories=Network;Application;
MimeType=x-scheme-handler/msteams;
X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true
# X-KDE-Protocols=terminal

You may have to change a few thing depending which desktop you use.
I use MATE, so I launch mate-terminal. Yours might be called something different.
X-GNOME and X-KDE are the two most common desktop types. If you don't use
one of these you may need to change the bottom two lines.
(mate is a Gnome type).
