I have my (first) WinForm that loads in the tray and shows an icon

How can I make it swap out the icon (or just change color) based on an event?
For development purposes, maybe just have it cycle colors every 20 seconds?

Add a Timer to your Form and set its Interval property to the time you want (in milliseconds, so 20000 for 20 seconds).

Supporsing that your icons are in the application resources, program the Tick event of the timer this way:
Private Sub Timer1_Tick(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick

   Static flag As Boolean

   If flag Then
      flag = False
      NotifyIcon1.Icon = My.Resources.Icon1
   Else
      flag = True
      NotifyIcon1.Icon = My.Resources.Icon2
   End If

End Sub
