Did you modify PHP code to achieve this result or did you have a look
at the file templates/admin/menus.xml?

If you didn't do the latter, now it might be a good time to do it,
since it allows you to reorganize the menu structure without modifying
any code. You could for example be taken to the "new resource" page
when clicking the "resource centre" link at the top by only changing
the value of the "url" parameter here:

<ResourcesGroup url="?op=resourcesGroup" localeId="resourceCenter">

It also allows to reorganize the whole menu structure if you wish.
Just make sure that the file validates as valid XML before testing it,
or else you'll get some funky menus...

This does not remove the action mappings from the controller, though,
so if you remove some options from the menu, users might still be able
to access them if they know the right value for the "op" parameter.

Same as above.

Do you have any examples?
