Can one add 'custom' programs to the Application Launch Bar?

Go to /usr/share/applications. This is where you will find most of your 
app launchers (there is another /applications which I believe is in your 
/home but I am drawing a blank as to where it is right now). Now use 
leafpad to edit the *.desktop that corresponds to the program. Look for 
the "Exec=xxxxx" line. Add whatever switches and parameters you desire 
to this line and save it. At this point add the program to the lxpanel 
app launcher in the normal way and it should be fine. Hope it works for you.
