Plants tend to grow taller and more spindly or stretched out when they are not getting enough light. Providing more light, with a sunnier window or a grow light if possible, will help the plant fill out. You can also cut the main stem back by about 1/3 to encourage it to grow more bushy.

Getting kalanchoes to bloom requires a specific process. Please see this article:
