Kreia wanted a WOUND right?
You do realize that there is literally no one else to kill her? Sion? He knows he can't, and doesn't even seem to try. The Jedi you've trained? They try that, and it doesn't work. So the Exile is the only one who can, mostly because she is the only one around that can.

As for the echo, it is simple. With her death, the ideals of the old Jedi order die with her. Thus, an echo.

Imagine the the Exile forming these bonds as her making friends. Perhaps not good friends, but still people that she would know enough about to care, perhaps even some of them Jedi she would be close with, etc. Then imagine the deaths at Malachor, these Jedi that she has connections to, are killed, almost before her eyes(admittedly it was that she watched from the bridge of a ship, but still...). As this happens, not only does she feel it, she feels their emotions, their screams, their pain.
