I really like the idea with playlist icons and thought I could provide some for your convenience. (Note that "REKKR" and "Blade of Agony" are actually PWADs, but I have set them up in my playlist like IWADs, depending on doom.wad or doom2.wad, respectively). Also you would ofc have to rename the icons if your playlists are named differently.
Also, you may consider adding HacX 2.0 r61 to the list of names.map since it's the latest development build of version 2.0 and no update has been made since years, so there may be people who are using this.

Other than that, I gotta say I am REALLY happy with this launcher now and will certainly use it as my default from here on out. It's lightweight, focusses on essential functions and allows you to customize the games you want to launch sufficiently (ZDE for example wouldn't allow me to set up separate entries for "REKKR" or "Blade of Agony", you are stuck with predefined entries). Right now I wouldn't come up with more ideas how to improve this any further, but if I come up with any other idea, I'll surely let you know!

What I am still not sure about is the purpose of the "merge" checkboxes. TBH I never needed those and I am not sure what their purpose is compared to the first checkbox (which is equivalent with launching a pwad with "-file", if I am not mistaken). I also wouldn't necessarily need to see the full file path for iwads and pwads, but the "Status" display is a nice feature to inform you in case file paths changed and you forgot about it.
What are the two text fields below the "Save Session" (left) and "Clear" (right) buttons? Couldn't figure out what they are supposed to do.
Suggestion(s) for additional "simplification":
1a) Remove "Merge" (pwad)/"Location" (iwad+pwad) fields OR
1b) Make display of "Merge" and "Location" fields optional OR
1c) At least place "Merge" checkboxes next to "Load" so it looks more sorted (and I guess it should be like you can only choose "Load" OR "Merge" for each entry in the pwad list, not both at the same time - this way it works like a switch)
2) Relocate the two "..." (selection) buttons for Source Port and IWad more to the left so it's more obvious what they are supposed to do (I would put them right after the words "Source Port:" and "IWad:")
3) The "Show Args" checkbox could be at the bottom of the pwad load list or underneath "Source Port"/"IWad" selection - right now it looks a bit out of place
4) [OPTIONAL] Show "OK" status in green, otherwise red font color (only in that column, not the whole line)
5) [OPTIONAL] Make "Play" button 2x as high as other buttons and increase its font size (bold letters) to highlight its functionality/importance
