hi
I think it is not possible because Tpanel can not be a parent of a Tmainmenu component

you cant change menu's parent to panel because it's not menu who draws itself on form but form draws menu items on itself, and panel is not capable of doing this. for same reason it's not possible to move menu in other place than top of form.
if you need such functionality you need some 3rd party components for example http://www.devexpress.com/Products/VCL/ExBars/
