ok - I was able to figure out and muddle through getting the menus to work the way that I wanted.
Basically, to edit the menus for “mini doudoulinux”, I had to
Login to “mini doudoulinux”
Add the full menu to the top right panel (as I described in my original post)
Select the “File Manager” from the work section of the Full Menu
Navigate to and edit by hand the file:
(note: you will need to right click and select show hidden files and folders)
(while I was in this directory, I also save a file as background.png to use as a wallpaper)
After I was done, I saved. Then I removed the full menu from the top right panel.
The hard part (Editing the file):
Unfortunately, this involved a lot of trial and error on my part as I had no idea what things were called or what Category they fell into. If there is a better way to do this, or some kind of documentation available here, please post.

I also went to the following location to determine what the shortcut names were:
Then I used gedit to open them and look at the text behind the shortcut.
If someone has an easier way to do any of this or some kind of manual, please share.
The other item that I needed to do is at a terminal run:
apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly
This fixed an issue that I had with getting MP4 files to play in Totem.
Again, if anyone knows of any documentation or helpful hints with the menu system, please share.
