I faced the same problem... :(

I probably don’t understand properly what you need. But if you want to modify
the action which contains the menu "bar", you could use KActionMenu.
Change the ui.rc to:
<Menu name="foo" >
then create a KActionMenu called "bar" in your KActionCollection, set its icon
etc., and populate its menu.
Of course this moves UI definition from ui.rc to C++ code, but it looks like
you want to modify the menu at runtime.
