I took a quick look at the E site and they did not seem to have much in the way of tutorials. There was a link to an enlightenment specific forum at: http://e1x.codewordt.co.uk/
With that said you can probably get a lot of things configured the way you like using other tools (if it is not possble via E configuration settings). For what I think you were asking about you could probably use a tool like idesk: http://idesk.timmfin.net/
This should get some icons on your desktop if you so desire. It seems as well that the E community is getting pretty excited about their next version of the windowmanager and will likely be placing much of their energy towards eventuallyy documenting and supporting that version. This, however, is pure speculation on my part as I have never used E as a primary window manager.
