Kinda.

It's not super straight forward.

If you just want to remove stuff from menu, you can do that thru moksha. Select edit icon and go to the third tab (general options) and there's a 'show in menu' option.

What I've figured out is every item in the menu has at least one desktop file. If you remove the desktop files, that'll certainly remove it from menu too.

You can also change what categories things show up in the menu thru trial and error. For example I wanted to put all my 'libre office' stuff intot he office category regardless of how it was previously categorized, so I edited desktop files to do thatat... some things by default have multiple categories, sometimes that makes them show up in the menu twice, sometimes it doesn't...

I've never found any instructions on it or a menu editor gui or something.

You can edit desktop files which can be found in /usr/share/applications dir.

Hmm, I realized you can use one feature Moksha has got. There is a simple desktop file editor.
Press ALT ESC for opening the Quick launcher and choose the app you want to change. Then press tab and select "Edit application". The editor will appear. Under General tab you can edit the category according your need.

One way is when it's open a program in a window then click on the top left corner thingy, first menu item is name of app, under that first thing is 'edit icon'

Another way is if you have taskman in your shelf, you can right click on any open program to get the same menu.

Another way is if you have a shortcut in an ibar, right click on the icon, top menu item, then properties

Yes, Moksha/E has many ways to do the same thing.
