Hi drugo,

If you just want to move the icons you can left click on the icon and keep it pressed and then you can drag to anywhere you want to.

If you want to add/remove icons, right click on system tray neat the system tray icons and go to properties. Here you will have the option to turn on/off the icons.
Click on "Customize notification icons" at the botom left side. It will take you to new window and in here you can select what all icons you need in the system tray and what kind of behaviour you would like.

Yes, you can. As I mentioned above right click on system tray go to properties. At the bottom left side you will get the option to Restore the default icon behavior".
