See ?Startup for how to do this via .Rprofile or etc/

The answer to your second question is that RGui is not written in tcltk (can't you tell from the speed with which it works?), but there are documented R functions for you to add menu items, such as winMenuAdd.

(I do wonder how you missed these in the searches for help, as all the terms I tried found the answers.)
