Emacs has drag'n'drop support. In fact, I've been able to drag and
drop image files from KDE's file manager (dolphin?) into emacs and make
them custom links.

(defun dnd-from-kde (url action)
  (insert url)
  (select-frame-set-input-focus (selected-frame)))

   '(dnd-protocol-alist (quote (("file:///" . dnd-from-kde)))))

This ought to give you a place to start. The URL format may need to
change to make it an Org link, I was using file:// for another text
