From the screenshot i assume you are using Mate, so for your questions:

1) Right click on the taskbar you want moved and choose Properties.
A window should open, click to the option Orientation, from there you can place it to any of the 4 basic positions you want to.

2) For your icons checkout viewtopic.php?f=20&t=8806 .

3) For changing backgrounds in folders(Caja), open Caja and goto Edit on your menu, then click on Backgrounds and Emblems, in the window that opens, drag and drop the desired pallete, color, etc.
An alternative is by going to Appearance in Control Center, choose Customize and click on the tab Colors in the opening window, from there you can choose any color you like.

4) I do not know one directly for caja, but the Appearance at the Control Center is should be fine enough for most.
