Desktop icons - size & position

I have a Raspberry Pi 3 B+, running Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)

I would like to be able to do 2 things with desktop icons.
1) Have them stay where I put them, not move to satisfy some predetermined grid
2) Size them to other than just Small, Medium or Large.

How do I do these two things?

Thank you.

I don't think you can get any size but the presets, small, medium, large. There is a setting to turn off snap to grid.
