Both issues are solvable in pure SDL. Window title can be set by 
SDL_WM_SetCaption, icon in task navigator by setting 
SDL_VIDEO_X11_WMCLASS environment variable. See 
http://maemo.org/maemowiki/GameDevelopment for details. Best is to use 
wrapper shell script as described.

You don't need .service file for SDL app, just .desktop as described in wiki
