    I believe that the RPM package defines where and if a program is added to the menu when installing.

    To add a program manually right click the open menu and select edit menu editor.

    It should wind up in the correct place within the menu if you create a .desktop file for it and install it with the app:

    Desktop Entry Specification

    Hope I understood correctly and that is what you are asking.
