Emacs does not yet support pull-down menus on a text terminal.  This
will be added soonish on the development trunk.

F10 should allow you to use an emulation of the menu in the echo
area.  I don't understand what you mean by "F10 and M-` will
pull down the terminal window but not the emacs one" -- what does
"pull down terminal window" means here?  In Emacs, F10 and M-` invoke
the command tmm-menubar.
