Applications yes, but both DEs have their own panel, which can have
special mini-applications called applets embedded within them.

OK, this is understandable. Is it possible to run the gnome panel inside (or on (?)) KDE.

If this is the case, how do I start it, the gnome panel, that is?

There is also the "Notification Area" standard, which
both DEs support, but this is for icons that can be used to control full
applications (like the System Tray in a certain less-free strain of OSs)
