Perhaps the following link is useful:

Basically copy one of the .desktop files in /usr/share/applications and
modify to your liking with a new name, comment, exec and categories
parameter. The categories parameter is used along with the gnome-vfs
files to determine what menu that item should go into. Thus the easiest
things is just to copy an existing entry in the same menu and change to
your liking.
