How to do that:
1) Open your steam folder, navigate to \resource\layout\ folder
2) Find overlaydesktop.layout file and open it with any text editor. The file format is similar to JSON.
3) In the text editor, in "controls" section, add following line:
BookmarkID { controlname="URLLabel" labeltext="Your bookmark name here" urltext="your page URL here" style="sidemenu"}
BookmarkID is something that you will refer this bookmark in next step
4) In "layout" section, add your BookmarkID to the list in following line:
place{controls="GameGroupsButton,ChatRoomButton,DLCButton,GuideButton,,WebSiteButton,RecommendButton,WorkshopButton,Your BookmarkID here" y=50 align=right region=overlay dir=down spacing=10 }
5) Save the file and you're done!

If anyone finds the above system complex to set-up, there is an alternative way to doing bookmarks. It's not as professional as the one shown here, but it offers another way to do simple bookmarks. For those interested, the tutorial link is here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2137398019

how do we make it so that they don't go away after every update or whenever a different user logs into steam?

making the file read-only works for some days... but not forever.
