That is a window manager setting, i.e. the window placement strategy.
For Kwin, the KDE default window manager, it can be changed in control center.

I think the icon has to be in one of the icon paths and the name of the icon 
is either the applications name or is specified in the applications .desktop 

The standard icon path for KDE is KDEPREFIX/share/icons (where KDEPREFIX is 
the installation path prefix of KDE, usually /usr or /opt/kde3)

Maybe the Sylpheed icon is only available in smaller sizes than necessary for 
a kicker button.

No, only raster image formats for now.
