Try this :

Goto Setting-->Control Center-->Desktop-->Behaviour.

Then click on the device icons tab and select all the device icons which you wish to be there on the desktop.

For other things right click on the desktop. Select Create new--> File--> Link to appliction.

Click on the "application" tab and Enter/browse any application you want to be run by that.
Click on the "general" tab and then on the icon button.Then Select any custom icon and you are done.

Hope this helps.

I am using KDE 3.2. In this there is a desktop entry in the control panel.
Maybe KDE 4.3 has changed this. I've not used that so maybe somebody else can help you better.

Did ya try the second method?
