Just booted into LM12 Cinnamon on a flashdrive - very slow
Confirmed the process is exactly the same as for LM14 Cinnamon above.

I'm not sure what you mean here.
You have a plain text document on your desktop? - use its name instead of my own example: My text document
You already have an icon to launch a program on your panel, eg. a Firefox icon on your panel?
Then right-click the Firefox (or any other program icon there on your panel) ...
Name: Name of your document
Application: gedit /home/your-own-user-name/Desktop/'Name of your document'
(Note the quotation marks enclosing the document name - this is only needed if document name has more than one word)
Icon: navigate to /usr/share/icons/Mint-X/emblems/24/emblem-documents.png*** - or choose your own icon located elsewhere
Edit: ***Just realised this icon isn't located there in LM12
Cinnamon - try a similar icon instead:
