Take a look at the *.desktop files in the directory 
under your KDE installation root dir.
Copying one of them and adapting it for the new 
type of session worked for me...

Try putting your start script into the Exec and TryExec lines, 
and change the session name.  You can just delete 
all the translations of the session name except the 
languages you need, of course.
