I don't see the logic of adding all the different icon sizes to your
image path.  They all have the same names, so only the first size you
mention is going to be found.

No.  You wouldn't want your icon resized each time it's displayed.
Better to pick the size you want at startup time like
fvwm-menu-desktop does.

You've lost me.
menudefs.hook looks to me like some kind of menu generator.
You should try fvwm-menu-desktop if you haven't done so already.
Use the size= parameter to control the icon sizes.
