How can I edit/create new launcher items in Unity by hand?

I have recently pinned my "custom" application to the Unity launcher bar. I'd like to tweak it a bit, add a description and maybe and icon for easier alt-tab recognition. However, I was not able to find where is the launcher bar information stored.

I have followed some older guides and looked to ~/.local/share/applications but nothing correspoding to my launcher is there. How (where) can I find that file(s) describing my launchers?

There is a unity documentation project, which does claim to have written some info. They don't seem to have done a good job of presenting this documentation to users though. Don't have time to search at the moment...
