I don't know where the relevant .desktop files are for PlayOnLinux apps, but WINE's are ...

The icons for a file type have nothing to do with what software you are using (unlike Windows). It is your icon theme that matters. On Ubuntu, this means it has to be under either /usr/share/icons or ~/.icons. You will need to edit some files like ...

The proper place to put .desktop shortcuts is in $HOME/.local/share/applications. I always put my Chromium shortcuts there (actually I was pretty sure they were already there by default). I'm sort of a neat freak and don't like keeping things on my desktop That's a good habit and you shouldn't be forced to keep shortcuts on it.

This isn't happening! Instead I'm getting a generic icon. What I've done: Placed the icon zathura.png in /usr/share/app-install/icons (which already contains the icon okular.png, which shows properly when I run okular). That's the right thing to do. Added the line Icon=zathura to the file /usr/share/applications/zathura.desktop (again in ...
