The code you're looking for is src/shell-app-system.c, but actually that
is just a wrapper (with some caching) aroung libgmenu (gnome-menus
module in git).
To have a .desktop file registered with ShellAppSystem, you need to show
it in some menu, that is, it must have a valid Categories key (look
at /etc/xdg/menus/ for the recognized ones). There is no
other way to register custom .desktop file, from JS code (code is there
but it's not exported).
