By that point, her goal had changed, though it was a simplified version of her previous one. Having the Exile kill her on Malachor is for one reason - she is the last remaining member of the Jedi Order, and of the Sith. With her death, the ideals that destroyed the Jedi, and tore apart the Sith(even though Sith rarely change) would die with her.

It isn't just Malachor. Dantooine, Telos, and even Taris(even if this isn't a location in the game) are places in which an echo can be felt. However, the echo caused by Malachor is different, in it can be felt within the Exile.

No, since she would still be alive. Her wish to destroy the force does go along with the fact that she holds on to ideals of the Jedi and the Sith, and if she does not die, either by the Exile's hand, or with the death of the force, her entire plan fails. It might still be successful if no one could use the force, but I don't think it goes that far.

Beyond Jedi or Sith in hiding, or those who have given up the force, she and the Exile are similar. By that, I mean that Kreia has been a part of the Jedi and the Sith, while the Exile, is the last of the Jedi(even if it is just in name only). Either of their deaths is going to cause an echo, and one of them must die. With the Exile, the Jedi falls, and Kreia would see the end of the force, if such a thing is possible. And of course, with Kreia's death, again, the former order, and ideals of the Jedi and Sith die, while a new order is allowed to replace them, perhaps avoiding the failings which were so prevalent.
