    How would I modify the registry file to have both control panel and settings on the Win+X menu?

    You can do so by having them in a separate group.

    I have Settings in Group2 (middle), and Control Panel in Group1 (bottom).

    Or if I wanted them to be in the same group, use the tutorial below to create an appropriate custom hashed shortcut for the control panel?

    If you meant the tutorial below, then yes you could do that to have them in the same group.

    Ok I will try out this evening on my laptop.

    In the ZIP file for the appropriately hashed Win+X shortcuts, settings has a 4- before the settings name. What does that number mean? Is it a position indicator?

    I can't remember what it is for, but it's just what was used by default in Windows 10.

    To add a custom shortcut to have both in the same group, the name of the custom shortcut would need to be different.
