Is there any way to add an icon (local user) at the Fast User Switch screen. Right now when I use the service I have the following icon (current user that is signed on and Other user). I would like to have another icon for local user. Currently on Windows 7 x64 on a domain.

Not built in to windows im afraid. You may be able to find a 3rd party app that will perform that function. When you select Other user you can type in the %computer name%\%username% to login as a local user. The option you are referring to is allowed on the workgroup setting but not domain.

In a domain, environment it is not possible.
and from a security point would rather be ill advised.
