Because title uses the global values for the space before the entries
unlike chapters which use a customised value, you can change this
by adding \setuplist[title][before={\blank[preference,big]}] to your document.

You can change the counter and prefix conversion of floats with the
prefiixconverionset and numberconversionset key for \setupcaption.

Use

\setuphead[section][numbercommand=\groupedcommand{}{:}]

instead of

\setuphead[section][sectionstopper=:]
