    The '->' and '|_' can be found in Admin -> Configuration -> Layout Settings under Category Separator and Subcategory indent

    As it says on the page, it's in includes/languages/english/index.php

    Code:
    define('TEXT_MAIN','This is the main define statement for the page for english when no template defined file exists. It is located in: <strong>/includes/languages/english/index.php</strong>');
    
    // Showcase vs Store
    if (STORE_STATUS == '0') {
      define('TEXT_GREETING_GUEST', 'Welcome <span class="greetUser">Guest!</span> Would you like to <a href="%s">log yourself in</a>?');
    } else {
      define('TEXT_GREETING_GUEST', 'Welcome, please enjoy our online showcase.');
    }
    
    define('TEXT_GREETING_PERSONAL', 'Hello <span class="greetUser">%s</span>! Would you like to see our <a href="%s">newest additions</a>?');
    
    define('TEXT_INFORMATION', 'Define your main Index page copy here.');
    What you should do is copy includes/languages/english/index.php to includes/languages/english/YOUR_TEMPLATE/index.php and make the changes there.

    Actually, I believe you can make your changes in includes/languages/english/html_includes/YOUR_TEMPLATE/define_main_page.php.

    You can probably also copy includes/languages/english/index.php to includes/languages/english/YOUR_TEMPLATE/index.php and set the values to spaces (remove the text but leave the single quotes.

    Code:
    define('TEXT_MAIN','');
    
    // Showcase vs Store
    if (STORE_STATUS == '0') {
      define('TEXT_GREETING_GUEST', 'Welcome <span class="greetUser">Guest!</span> Would you like to <a href="%s">log yourself in</a>?');
    } else {
      define('TEXT_GREETING_GUEST', 'Welcome, please enjoy our online showcase.');
    }
    
    define('TEXT_GREETING_PERSONAL', 'Hello <span class="greetUser">%s</span>! Would you like to see our <a href="%s">newest additions</a>?');
    
    define('TEXT_INFORMATION', '');
