So you want different colors and you want to do it in Photoshop?

I would say, open the file in Photoshop, take the magix wand and select e.g. the pink colour.
Once selected select the (fill) bucket tool, select the colour you want and poor it in the icon.

You have not stated your PCs OS.

Generally:
Right-click the icon, and then click Properties. Click the Appearance tab. In the Item box, click change appearance, then choose the color of your coice.

For the pink color this will work, yes.

The yellow is actually a gradient, so if you want to replace it with another gradient, here's what you need to do:
1. Select the Rectangular Marquee Tool (or press M)
2. Draw a rectangle over the yellow portion.
3. (optional) Modify your selection using Select->Transform Selection
4. Select the Gradient Tool (or press G)
5. Modify your desired colors from the top context menu
6. Click and drag over your selection to apply the gradient.

Of course, you can do both colors at the same time by simply using Image->Adjustments->Hue/Saturation (or press CTRL+U) and play with the HUE settings.

HTH,
Dan
