The "bar" is called the panel.  What you see on it are not just icons, but
menus and activly running programs as well (called applets).  These
applets can currently only be run in the panel.  

You can run gmc to get desktop icons.  Your window manager can supply you
with menus on your desktop (called "root menus"), but they won't have the
GNOME stuff in them.

In fvwm, you can set an Icon box for the icons of minimized windows.  I
don't recall the actual syntax, you should check the fvwm documentation,
or a list/newsgroup devoted to fvwm.
