I find running Mountain Lion ( it seems to me a lot of redundency built in- I won't use the term bloatware.)
For better preformance I have to reboot every 8 to 11 days with 8GB of RAM.
I will say it is a production machine so I always have at least 18 apps running.MacBook Pro (15-inch Mid 2010), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3), 2.4GHz IntelCorei5 320GB HD 8GB RAM

Interesting. I bought it when it first came out. I read some reviews on the App Store and thought to be ok. I didn't know it would slow things down too, which kind of ironic as an app that tries to make things better for the Mac.
What would be the best way to use the Mac and apps without taking up too much Ram? I open the same apps as I would have when I only had 4-8GB of Ram on my older machines, so I don't know why it still eats up all my ram as it does on the MBP - R

Agreed it is a pain to reboot. 10.8.3 is the way to go to stay current and interface with Notifications and any iOS device. I would not go backwards.
memory allocation in terminal or any other application to make it run faster ?
No OS X handles all memory management allocating whatever RAM is required by a running process.
For a terminal process you might change the renice level to change a process' priority. At a Terminal prompt enter 'man renice' to learn how to use the command.
You can use the built in Applications/Utilitiies/Activity Monitor to get a handle on some of the details of RAM/CPU etcMacBook Pro (15-inch Mid 2010), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3), 2.4GHz IntelCorei5 320GB HD 8GB RAM
