    It is not currently possible to modify the dashboard/admin menu from the Nav Menu Editor without a relatively non-trivial amount of custom code. There may be a plugin which enables such functionality, but I'm not aware of it. All that in mind, it is unlikely that someone will furnish the necessary code from scratch given the amount of work involved in doing so. If you'd still like to pursue the issue, any code you can share from your attempt at an implementation will greatly increase the chances of receiving an answer.
