It is possible to drag & drop application & folder icons to desktop , how they look depends on your icon theme. You can also create custom launchers by right clicking the desktop , which you can use custom icons of your choice that you have downloaded.

For gadgets you can look at Screenlets or gDesklets from the software center and this link. http://desktop.google.com/plugins/
