The second error is because that file is not an executable file. It is a descriptive text file.

You can find the actual program to run by running:
grep Exec /usr/local/share/applications/xfce-session-settings.desktop

You can try running the output from that in your terminal. Perhaps you need to install the "session" plugin? This may be available in your package manager as xfce-session or xfce4-session.

Also, running as root is not a good idea.
