Why was the hotel room from which Cobb saw Mal jump already smashed up? And does the fact that we/he never sees Mal hit the ground imply she was indeed creating a 'kick' that took her up to the real world?

The kick is applied by a person to another person who is sleeping. You cannot kick yourself by falling. She must have killed herself to wake up. 
The hotel room was smashed up so that it does not look like a suicide but Cobb killing her. She wanted to force him to fall too, therefore she staged this so that if he stayed he would be convicted of a crime.
