Removal of wall

I live in a duplex and there is a wall between kitchen & living room that I want to remove? And how or where do you move the cold air vent on the living room wall?

You need to determine if it is a load bearing wall 1st
Is there another wall on the 2nd floor above this?

I would get a contractor or structural engineer in to look at this.

You definately can't just move a wall willy-nilly without some serious structural investigation.

The question about the cold air return is much too general for anyone to give a beneficial answer.
