Yes, I'm getting similar results with my experiments (which I
accidentally put into the wrong thread).

As for item number 4, the good news is that MATE can do that.

If you use the "Main Menu" applet (my favorite), you can right-click
any program in the menu and choose any of these from the context
menu, with the last one offering a sub-menu:
	* Add this launcher to panel
	* Add this launcher to desktop
	* Entire menu >
		* Add this as drawer to panel
		* Add this as menu to panel 

If you use the "Menu Bar" applet, you can right-click any program in
the menu and choose any of these from the context menu, with the last
one offering a sub-menu:
	* Add this launcher to panel
	* Add this launcher to desktop
	* Entire menu >
		* Add this as drawer to panel
		* Add this as menu to panel 

If you use the "MATE Menu" applet, you can right-click any program in
the menu choose from these context menu options:
	* Add to desktop
	* Add to panel
