These pages are account related pages and there is no SEO URLs on them.

If you need to rename them or create different URL, you can use .htaccess rewrite rule.

to make rewrite rule is not enough. You also should to change links for menu. Go go admin->design->menu and change link for some of items.
for ex. http://yourdomain.com/account

then you creates rewrite rule for this url and redirect request to http://yourdomain.com/?rt=account/account. that's it.

I see the link I want and that's OK
The problem is when its redirect the URL to a parameter Google will see the parameter and that is not OK and no is not the same.

Please help me to find the code so will change some code to make this happens how hard can it be?
Also I want to ask about my logo in the website how can I do so it will be the link of the website : mysite.com with no parameter?

I will be so happy if you can help me with that .

no. google will not see redirect. If you doing rewrite via htaccess nobody knows about it. Just rewrite your public seo url to your abantecart url with "rt" parameter.
try to search about this rewrite rule. in internet a lot of examples.

You have to re write the URL and that' the only thing that you can do for performing SEO services in your website. Try to figure our the links of digital marketing firms like Kreata Global, Mccolins to know about the seo friendly urls.

The concern is only with the URLs of registration and shopping cart? Needless why the right is that these URL`s are not indexed, why not have quality content. It is important for the user to some action, but not to generate content.

There's not a simple solution to this without doing a rewrite.  The URL for login for example is a function of multiple files working together located in different folders and sub folders, not a path to a specific folder that contains all the files and functions to make that particular page work. That is why the function is called as it is. 

Google will index it just fine and people doing a search will be looking at the page title and meta description, not the link. If they want to bookmark the login link for example, they can go to that page and bookmark it.
