Sorry we must have crossed emails.
It looks like you haven't added anything to the home page widgets provided in Agency 2.0? That's how you customize the home page, via Appearance=> Widgets. They are listed along the right hand side. Just drag & drop from the left to right. Any you had before will still be there towards the bottom under "Inactive Widgets."
I'm not sure I understand the problem with your About page? It should be there, you may need to activate the menu or add the page to the menu.
Maybe destination folder already exists?
Have you done much work customizing the theme? It may feel like tons, but have you edited any files like the functions.php or style.css?
My suggestion is if you're starting work on a new site to use the most recent version. There have been changes, one being responsive design, that were implemented in 2.0.
If your changes are posts, pages, widgets or menus those are not theme specific and should be fine (although you may have to re-enable to menus and widgets) if you change themes.
It could be as simple as backing up what you have and if you haven't done much, to remove(delete) the current Agency theme and replace it with the newer Agency 2.0 then redo your customizations.
My guess is the problem is that the two themes create the exact same named theme directory which is why the destination folder already exists.
If you've done a lot of work editing files, you can use ftp access to rename the directory and move or copy files.
Let me know if you need more details.
On the Agency theme you should find the header upload at Appearance=>Header.
Hope that helps.
If you're still having a problem, let me know when the site is available and I can take a look.
Please post a link to your site.
To piggyback Ryan...
The Genesis Responsive Header plugin may help you.
Best of Luck!
The short version of my experience.
I come from the software world, good w/design tools (NOT a fine artist) so wear web design & development hats.
Started with StudioPress in early in 2012 after looking at a couple frameworks. Love, love, love StudioPress. Software reuse is huge. Reuse of sound software, better still. The Genesis framework is a sound, tested, yet not over burdened layer atop WordPress with many smart minds contributing to the base and that many talented web folks of a broad background use. Lots of on-the-job testing, can't beat that. The Community is icing on the cake. It doesn't matter what level you are, there is so much more support than I had expected... for free. There is always a line, support can be expensive. Wow.
In the fall of 2102 I wanted to try Elegant Themes. They are so darn pretty! Kudos to Elegant Themes, they are great designers. So I tried it on a client project. First, it's kind of an apples and oranges comparison. Genesis is a great engine beneath the "pretty." Elegant themes is a theme house. That aside...
With roots as a software geek, even learning WordPress I don't think I have ever bought a theme or a child theme (now I just create them) w/o getting into the guts (php& css). No matter how you work, some of your(my) commitment to a framework or theme house is in figuring out how they do things. It was painful with Elegant Themes. They (imho) are focused on folks who like to tweek the configuration entirely via the front end. I'm not their target market. All that configurability adds bulk to and can slow down your site - which can be fine depending on the size and host. The community at Elegant Themes is different too. Lastly, there were some under the hood things that didn't work for me. It may have been the particular theme. Elegant Themes has a lot of pretty themes and they sell a lot of them, it just wasn't a fit for what I was trying to do the way I was trying to do it.
So like anything, it depends on your background and what you're trying to do.
Love StudioPress. There are themes that give you that front end customization for people who don't want to get under the hood and a solid base for those do-it-yourselfers and everything in between.

Since you posted a new topic for your new question, we'll close this one.
Give it another try. I just checked it and Brad's link should take you to a login where upon logging in you are redirected to support.
Just logged in and page that you land on contains some Troubleshooting FAQ with a support ticket on the bottom.
Perfect, Thanks Debra!June 19, 2013 at 5:59 am in reply to: How to upload genesis & crystal from local to website #46713
Don't forget about the database. You'll need to export and restore the database also (and correctly change the path).
BackupBuddy is a great tool for site migration. It has saved me hours! In the past there have been issues with some hosts configurations/speed (GD most notably) but they seem to have been resolved.
The 50K foot version is ... It's a $ WP plugin that you install, run a backup, save a migration file (now those steps can be combined), ftp the files to new host, create or drop the new database, type http://mysite.com/importbuddy.php and it walks you through the install process.
There are a number of great sites with variations on the process if you google.June 19, 2013 at 5:48 am in reply to: Lifestyle theme. Adding text space above posts in Category Posts in Page #46712
This might work for you.
If you're looking for entry text specific to a category for a category archive, navigate to that category (Post=>Category=>select the category) and scroll down.
You can add an Archive Title & Archive Intro text, a nice feature. I learned about it last week when someone (sorry I can't remember who) posted it as a solution.
Hope that helps!
You may consider posting this as your own thread as it looks like a different issue.
Have you tried deleting the Genesis Simple Headers Plugin w/Minimum? You can use the default header configuration under Appearance=>Header. It should work out of the box. I tried it with Minimum on one of my sites and worked!
Once the text is worked out, you can either change the height specified for the custom header in your functions.php or edit the css to increase the min-height property so the full header(logo) is displayed.
Did you rule out conflict with another plugin by deactivating all your other plugins?May 8, 2013 at 5:44 am in reply to: Changing height on Property Search widget (in AgentPress) #39848
Fantastic, glad you resolved the issue & thanks for the update Property One!
Sorry, our messages crossed before.
Sounds weird? Many place to jump...
Was header fine before Genesis Responsive Header plugin added? or still an issue?
I would deactivate the Genesis Responsive Header, upload a colored image with alternate color where logo would be, sized as header is expecting (mine is 960x120) and work back from there. Sometimes it gets confused with just the logo in the header.
So sorry can't be more helpful.
Did you upload the logo via appearances=>header?
Looks like only though the Genesis Responsive Header plugin?
It looks like that may be the problem?May 1, 2013 at 6:29 am in reply to: Streamline Child Theme: Increasing font size in Primary Nav Menu #38730
Glad the plugin worked for you!
Have you tried using Chrome Dev Tools or Firebug(FireFox)? Andrea has a fantastic Firebug tut. They are tools to provide visibility into your site from within the browser and are easy to use. They also let you change the css live to see the results w/out editing the css file.
Using Firebug it shows line 283 as the start of the .menu-primary, .menu-secondary, #header .menu styling as Marco showed above. Because you have only a single nav, you can change the font-size: 12px; to whatever you want and have it display.
Or just add the separate statement below (thanks Marco!).
If you've made either change, saved & refreshed and it's not showing up - clear your browser cache and reload.
Good Luck!April 30, 2013 at 8:53 pm in reply to: Streamline Child Theme: Increasing font size in Primary Nav Menu #38668
Oh, I'm so sorry. You can either install the "advanced code editor" plugin and it'll give you line numbers or I can give you more specific directions.
Sorry I ftp the files and edit them and sometimes forget.
Looking at the site, your logo is only being loaded in one of the media queries. That's why it doesn't show in your desktop browser. That can be very frustrating.
Have you edited the css? Before doing anything more, try to delete and reload the logo to see if that fixes it.
