To start 'xmms' type 'xmms' into a terminal.
To locate the executable type 'which xmms' in a terminal and create a desktop link with that path.

It has been a while since I used Wine. Check the docs. Something like 'wine /path/to/windows/program'

I don't know which desktop you are using.
Right clicking should give you the option to create a link.
Checking the properties of an existing link should give the syntax.

Right click on the desktop.
Create New -> Link To Application
Type the name for your link in the space at the General tab. Click the icon there if you wish to choose another.
At the Execute tab, type the full path in the Command: space. (/usr/bin/xmms (?))
