You can only adjust side bearings in the spacing tab. Kerning pairs can be created in the kerning tab.

There is no function in Birdfont to delete all kerning pairs, there was one but it was too easy to delete all pairs by mistake. I recommend that you open the bf file in a text editor and manually delete the kerning tags.

I will try to find out how many kerning pairs you can have.

The old kern table can store 10919 number of pairs. This is a limitation in the TTF format. You can store many more pairs in the GPOS table but the maximum number of pairs depends on how kerning pairs are organized in the table.
