To open the terminal on boot open file manager, navigate to /home/pi/Desktop and find the lxterminal shortcut. Right click and copy it.
Then go to /home/pi/.config/autostart (create these folders if they don't exist) and paste the file in there.
Reboot and lxterminal should open.
Though if you don't want the xwindows interface at all you can use the console by changing the start desktop on boot in raspi-config.
Navigate to home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/
@lxterminal in the last line. Press

Restart raspberry pi
