Icons - in cinnamon they are toggled in cinnamon settings>desktop. I'm sure there's something similar in kde.

You do not mount the iso in the virtual machine - it runs in the the vmware prog. - clear as mud, I know; but google should help.

Picture 4 of your link shows that the iso is mounted in the virtual machine and that it is available to the guest OS (mint).
I seem to remember ( things may have changed) that there was a install.sh ( or something like that) on the iso
Patch? Dunno! what does it do??
As you are struggling to use vmware you might find Virtual box easer to use.
I have win xp and win 7, several versions of mint and other linux's working really well on Virtual box.
