Hi,
Alacarte might work... It didn't work in precise, but it may be working
again.
You can edit categories there.

You could make a custom menu in ~/.config/menus/custom.menu

You could use the debian-menu which has lots of categories.

Navigate in pcmanfm (or terminal) to:
/etc/xdg/menus
lxde-applications.menu
is your current menu.
debian-menu.menu
is the menu more similar to what you are talking about.

*cp /etc/xdg/menus/debian.menu ~/.config/menus/lxde-applications.menu*
AFAIK this should work to replace the menu structure with one you like

If you don't like it simply delete OR edit
~/.config/menus/lxde-applications.menu
