No.  'favicon' is a link statement like this for this page.
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="//experts.cachefly.net/images/experts-exchange/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

No.  A 'favicon' is an image that is Not part of the HTML on a page.  CSS only works on HTML elements and the favicon is not an HTML element.
