It would appear that you have been away from the list for quite a
considerable time whilst using a rather obsolete version of Fedora in
the interim.  In the past year or two there have been many many
changes not only to the underlying infrastructure but also to the
desktops - including the move from Gnome2 to Gnome3, and major
developments in KDE and other desktops.  I would really suggest that
you look back through the list archives because these things have been
discussed at considerable length already - and please look up the
differences in the newer versions of the desktops compared to the old
versions - what you are asking has not been possible in the new
versions of gnome or kde for some time now. Adding items to the KDE
panel is now done quite differently than when KDE was version 3. In
Gnome there is no "panel" as such any more though it is possible to
add your own items to the "dash" - but as I said you will find there
is a lot of information if you spend some time reading the list
archives - if after doing that you have residual questions then please
do come back and ask how to achieve specific aims with the chosen
desktop that you are using.  These days Fedora also provides xfce and
lxde desktops apart from Gnome3 (based on Gnome Shell) and KDE 4 which
is currently at version 4.7.3 and about to move to 4.7.4.
