You can change the icon size under view

The other part I'm not sure I understand what you're saying, can you post a screenshot of it?

By making the icons large it forces the system tray to rise a bit and it's really ugly.

Let me try to explain exactly what I want with as much detail as I can;
When you pin a program, and run it, it opens the program but it replaces the pin with the opened one. So if I pressed the iTunes button on the task bar, it'd open iTunes and 'replace' the pin with the program.

When I use the quick launch method it doesn't do that, it creates a whole new window in the task bar. I don't want that to happen, I want it to act the exact same as a pinned program, but locking it to the right (Only two to the right, the rest to the left side of the task bar).

So if I understand you right, you open a program from one of the shortcuts on the right, it places an open (highlighted) icon on the left?

That's what it does, and not what I want.

Would that same shortcut open a second one if it was placed on the left? Some programs do that anyway, What program is it or is it more than one?

No it doesn't. It's Warcraft 3, and League of Legends (Both games that take a while to start up and I mis click them sometimes)

Sorry I'm out of ideas why it does that, maybe someone else has some better info for you.

The taskbar does not natively support pinning to the right. The separate toolbar approach posted above is the closest you can get.
