Just load them in. Any standard .ICO file can be used. For the control buttons you've got to change the button type to GRAPHICAL from STANDARD. Most forms and picture boxes and such will accept .BMP or .GIF files in their .Picture property.

If you need to create custom icons, Microangelo works well.
