Why would the water pressure in the kitchen sink go way down after installing a new dishwasher?

Your faucet may be clogged. If you have good pressure elsewhere in the house, this is your most likely culprit. You may just have crappy overall water pressure. If you don't have good pressure in the tub or elsewhere, consult with a plumber about installing a pressure tank to increase your water pressure.

Probably the drain hose from the dishwasher isn't high enough to keep the water from running back . The hose should be above the level of the disposal at some point. Some states require an "air gap" which is a device that is placed in the drain line to prevent this. Some states require a simple high loop in the drain hose. Many dishwasher manufacturers are now installing backflow preventers in the dishwasher.
Why would my water pressure drop after replacing the main line water pressure valve and installing a new water heater?
What is the purpose of the drain thingy that is covered with a chrome vented thingy that is on your kitchen sink where you would rather have a sprayer and how do you change it out?
It sounds like the item you are describing is an Air Gap Fitting for the dishwasher. It is used to prevent sewage/dirty water from entering the dishwasher from the sink drain. Some Plumbing Codes require it to be installed. You can get kitchen sinks with multiple holes to allow you to install a sprayer and still have your air gap device.
