    If you want an icon to start your activity on the home screen. You can just add this to that Activity's intent filter

    <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
    <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

    As the Home Screen is its own app, only the user can add app shortcuts/widgets to it. While you might be able to figure out how to do it with the default Home Screen App, you'll have difficulty doing that with all of the custom home screens done by the various manufacturers. At best you can inform the user how to do certain things on launch (and hope they follow your instructions).
