What makes you think it should be editable? This is simply not supported by lxpanel. There are other plugins where the edit buttons are greyed out, too.

The number and position of the desktops are defined by the window manager, this means by openbox.

And btw: This problem is not of high severity becauses "High" is defined as "Problem due to crashes, loss of data, severe memory, leak, etc." What you actually want is a feature request.

Installation of Openbox Configuration Manager enables creation of additional desktops in LXDE. XFCE crashes too often to be usable and Cinnamon takes too much processor power.
