    Apple made some changes in 10.2, making it a lot more difficult/impossible to change certain icons...

    The file you want is /Application/System Preferences.app/Contents/Resources/PrefApp.icns

    It has the three different sizes for the icon embedded within it.

    No, you just need to use an icon creation app to do it, and then save as a .icns file...or if you already have the .icns file from another app, use that.
