It has been a while since I used wine, but you can right click on the desktop in KDE and select create link to application, and then under command, type type the command used to start the application. On the left hand side there should be an icon. If you click on it you can set which icon to use for the app.

In addition to that set the working path to where the program's exe is located. Wine is picky about the directories.
