Not exactly.  Those choices determine whether icons _line up_ Top (along
the top), Left (down the left side), Bottom (along the bottom), or Right
(down the right side).  So Top/Left might look the same when there's only
one icon, but they are 4 different options.

Yes, there is no way to do that ... unless you install 3.8.18, which
provides a taskbar, which puts tasks (not exactly icons) at the bottom of
the panel.

I then eliminate icons entirely by putting 

Style "*"                       NoIcon

in ~/.xfce/xfwmrc.
