to put a shortcut on your desktop with LP and change the icon, do this:
-long press on screen
-under add to home screen: select "shortcuts"
-under select shortcut: select "applications"
-pick the app you want to make a shortcut for, i.e. barcode scanner
- it will come up with a window that has the current barcode scanner icon and underneath words that currently say "barcode scanner"
- there is also a message that says (touch this icon to change it)
-touch the barcode scanner icon
-you will get a box that says "Complete this action using" and it will give you your options: for me it is 3D Gallery or Photos
-Select One of those (if you want to use an icon out of an icon pack you have I suppose you will need to move that icon to the photo folder using a file explorer like Astro)
-find the photo/icon you want to use and touch it to select it
-it will then go back to a box that says "Edit Shortcut" and has a button that says "Ok"
-there should now be an icon on your homescreen for that app
To change an icon that is in the dock, just long press it and it will give you these options:
-swipe gesture action
Select change icon and then select whether you want to use LP icons or a custom icon. the LP icons are pretty boring so you would probably want to use a custom icon which you could pick from your gallery/photos.
anyway that is the way I do it. I hope you can understand this and it helps a bit. Good luck.
