You have to do in the panel: alt+right click in order to see the menu.

How did you installed gnome 2?, I suppose you mean gnome fallback desktop.

Perhaps your compiz is not working well, try to log out and login again in classic gnome without effects.

To add icons, remove or move to the panel you have to use key ALT +right click in the mouse, this is for sure in gnome fallback desktop.

Here,there is an excellent guide to configure gnome fallback in 12.04: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1966370

not working totally unclickable !

As you are using compiz the combination keys will be: super Key (or windows key) + ALT + right click in any place in panel.
