I don't think there is an All Users location like in the Windows world.

There is /System/Library/UserTemplate which is kinda like the Default Users directory in Windows. But that is a a one time shot and does not apply to existing user profiles.

You may need to do a shell or apple script to do a defaults write command to place something in the Dock. Or an Apple script or Automator action to create the Alias you want on their desktop.

Keep in mind, Mac users have some of the most unorganized Desktops you have ever seen and adding anything else to the Desktop might be futile.

Try not to think in the Windows sense just because it makes sense to you.
