Bootstap Icons

I have a Bootstrap form that is using glyphicons.  I need to replace one of them with a custom icon.

First, I need to know how to swap out one of the out of the box bootstrap icons with my own and once I know how to do that I need to find an ICON generator or method to build my own that will look like text in a button.  One such button needs to say "Go".

Here is a code fragment where I want to make this change:
<div id="advancedInitial" style="display:none">
      <div class="container-fluid">
        <label for="person">Who Do You like?</label>
        <div class="input-group">
          <input type="text" id="txtSearchSelectedPeopleInitial" class="form-control" name="field1"/>
          <div class="input-group-addon"><a href="#" onClick="SearchRequest(); return false;" class="glyphicon glyphicon-search"></a></div>
        </div>
      </div>
</div>

what about : https://jsfiddle.net/do5ftjna/2/
you don't really need the span around the GO...

<div id="advancedInitial">
      <div class="container-fluid">
        <label for="person">Who Do You like?</label>
        <div class="input-group">
          <input type="text" id="txtSearchSelectedPeopleInitial" class="form-control" name="field1"/>
          <div class="input-group-addon"><a href="#" onClick="SearchRequest(); return false;" class=""><span>GO</span></a></div>
        </div>
      </div>
</div>

about gliphicone-search, look inside this file, line 309 : https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/css/bootstrap.css

.glyphicon-search:before {
  content: "\e003";
}
