Question adding items to xfce panel

I have couple of questions. I am newbie to the Linux world, so excuse me if they sound stupid/funny

I have Fedora core 3 , which had kde runing. I wantd something faster so i switched to fxce(heard lot about it being sleaker/ faster). so ...

Q1. can i add or launch any app. which was available to me under KDE from xfce? if yes then how Although i have tried adding some apps like "firefox" succesfully. But how do i find commands/locations of other apps.( e.g XMMS does not lauch saying "no such file found").
Q2. If we install an app. through say KDE or Gnome, then are these apps. independent of the window managers meaning if i switch to another WM would they still be available to me? if yes then how?

I guess thats enough for now...Thanx in advance.
