I am equating bulkhead with soffit. Is seamless cabinets or crown molding. I would run sheetrock above window and run crown on cabinets and above window. If you are good with crown build chase around duct above range hood and crown around it.
Save cabinets for work shop.

I'm not install the new kitchen ... And where the vert
Is... The new one goes right
Up to the ceiling and the back splash will probably run all the way up there as well ...so that one won't be as visible

Just giving ideas. Code is usually not more than 3' above range for range hood.

You need to cut the ceiling drywall about 24" or more away from the wall--

this will remove the thickened drywall corner where the soffits use to end--

If you do not do that,you will end up with a thick,uneven joint where your new cabinet crown will meet---

Up here bulkheads are what you call soffits...boxes to hide ductwork

Soffits and fascia are outdoors next to the eavstroughs
