Doc: make instructions for adding kits easier to find



As the Qt version and compiler are now specified in a kit, and not
in build settings any more, the instructions for adding kits, Qt
versions, and compilers should be moved up one level, directly under
"Configuring Projects". I also added some instructions and links to them
in the text. These topics could also go into "Building and Running", but
I feel they now fit quite well here.
