The version of android is 4.1.2 and is stock.
Your help is appreciated.
Edit: Ooops! It's system/app/settings.apk my bad!
Also, you probably have an odexed rom. I suggest installing a stock deodexed rom so you can decompile settings.apk
You can get one in the roms section, I remember 4.1.2 stock deodexed versions of wanamlite or archidroid roms.
I'll look into which xml to edit, don't really remember. It's usually one called layout or res_layout or something like that.
There was a tut for modding the settings layout, ill look for it when I get home and post the link, was very helpful a long time ago.
Edit2: this is the tutorial. It was made for moding android 2.3.6 settings. But a lot of things still apply. It gives a very good idea on what each section does, and how the layout is made and you're only removing stuff, not adding titles or sections:
