Did you try looking in the *KDE Help Browser* for a basic KDE tutorial?
RH's install puts that in the kpanel at the bottom of the screen. That
will get you started; the icon looks like a book and a lightbulb.

There should be a folder visible called "Templates". If you want to
create a desktop icon for a certain program, copy the "Program" file from
the Templates folder onto the desktop. Then right-click on the program
template, select Properties, and config it to your heart's content... RH
ships with a bunch of icons; you can make the thing look like many things
by clicking on the default "gear" icon in the Properties dialog.

The way you put news items in the desktop in Kde is very simple: Right
click (click on the right mouse button) on the desktop (click on the right
mouse button when your mouse cursor is on the desktop and looks like a big
"X").

KDE has a fairly extensive help browser. I suggest you start
with that.
