  I was wondering what guide/interpreters are paid, I was thinking of a more unique experience than just a tour, someone who could show me some things that aren't necessarily on the usual tourist itinerary

Nepal is famous for its landscapes and mountains and you will be able to find it in any parts of Nepal. Places like Pokhara, Kathmandu, Mustang etc are famous for sightseeing but are as expensive as any developed country.

I would recommend visiting Eastern Nepal which till now remain untouched by the tourist, so everything will be cheaper and you will also get to experience real Nepal.

On top of that Eastern Nepal has lot of other unique experience like Tea garden and also if you wish you can visit India too easily.

Just to break down the cost. To travel to Kanchanjunga Mountain, which is the third highest in the world. I reckon amount of 300 dollars should be more than enough.

Great questions. What I suggest people do is come to Bhaktapur first for the following reasons. It's about the same distance from the airport, but a bit higher elevation so less pollution. They have daily garbage pick up here so it is much cleaner. They do not allow cars into the old city so it's much more quiet. It's a really beautiful, sacred, ancient city.

In my eBook and blog I suggest spending time in each of the four quadrants of the Kathmandu Valley for a few days each. Come to Bhaktapur and see Changunarayan, Nagarkot and Namabuddha. Then go to the Kapon area and the big monastary, Boudhanath, Pashapatinath. Then go down to the Balaju side and see Osho meditation center and hike in the queen's forest, etc. Depending on how much time you have here you can do the same for Pharfing area, etc. My blog is listed here on Expat and this year I got the top blog for Nepal. There are a lot of things that I address in the blog, everything to enrich your Nepal experience from cultural norms to interesting, not-so-touristic things to do.
