I've added some desktop files in /.local/share/applications (and this is also what Firefox is doing when installing webapps), but they don't show up in the gnome dash.

Correction: they show up after a reboot. Is there a way to show them when they are added?

Try restarting gnome-shell: alt + f2 "r [enter]".
