Right click onto the desktop. Then desktop settings -> Icons or Symbols
(I don't know how it's called in the English version).

That's currently not possible on Xfce. There's already a feature
request for that in Xfce's bug tracker since more than 5 years.

Xfce is stable.

Changes at the .desktop files in /usr/share/applications (the menu) are
processed only after Xfce is restarted or immediately by running
`update-desktop-database` as root. I think they are also processed
without restarting Xfce once in a while. I don't know if this also
applies to the .desktop files in ~/Desktop, but I think so.
