Items in the taskbar are simply shortcuts to an application's .exe file. You can delete these by right clicking on the icon and cursor down to delete on the drop down menu. To add an icon, go to the application's file (open it through Windows Explorer) and find the correct file (usually you will see the picture of the icon before the file name); this may take some hunting through the subfolders. Right click, and look for "Create shortcut" then drag and drop the new shortcut to your task bar.
Remember, though, that each shortcut adds (even if just a little) to your boot time.
Hope this helps,
