Not actually a whole lot. There are a number of GUI apps that provide command-line windows, but unlike Microsoft's "CMD" versus "COMMAND" windows, the shell used isn't part of the command-window app, it's the shell you have selected being presented in a GUI container.

The grandaddy of them all is XTerm. It's somewhat of a pain to use because their "scrollbar" doesn't work like how we expect scrollbars to act these days. In Red Hat, the "terminal" app is actually the "gnome-terminal" program, and "Konsole" is the KDE control program. IIRC, one neat features of Konsole is the ability to split the window into multiple command-line panes.

I'm not sure if all of the above have man/info pages, but I think a little web searching will turn up documentation for all of them.

I think the command name is "konsole". However to use that, you already have to have a console opened!

Most desktop setups have one or more menus, icons, or whatever that can be used to open konsole by GUI means, but the exact locations of those controls will vary.
