I don't think you can add programs to the panel or desktop using Mint Menu. What you can do is right-click on the panel, choose add to panel, select main menu, and then using the main menu you can right-click on any application and create a launcher on your panel or desktop. When you're done you can right-click on the main menu and remove it from the panel.
I don't really use the favorites function...so maybe clem or someone else can help you out with that.
