In the user profile's home directory there's a directory called Desktop, which
contains files that determine what should be seen on the desktop.

In the user profile's .kde/share directory there's a directory called applnk,
which determines what should be seen in the menu, there's also a global
directory called /opt/kde3/share/applnk which holds the menu entries for all

Finally, in the user profile's .kde/share/config directory is a file kickerrc
which determines what is seen on the panel.

The requirement "can log in on any computer" can be solved in a number of
ways. Two that spring to mind are to mount the user profile's home directory
from an nfs share, or to have a remote desktop over XDMCP. There are surely
other ways too.
