I am not able to change an applications icon by drag-and-drop into the icon well without a problem - when I do, it always shows the 'preview' icon, which is obviously not what I want. Can anyone help here?

This has always worked for me…

open the file you want to use in Preview.
from the Preview edit menu,-select all, again from the edit menu,-Copy,
now paste this into your Application icon in the 'Get info section'.

Nothing works. CandyBar is killing me right now. I tried importing too, and it shows a blank icon that you can click on, but it's completely blank. I wanted to use candybar because when I manually change the icon, Macintosh HD doesn't show the icon png in the preview to the left of the writing (below).

Can anyone help? I've tried literally everything. I'm building a Mavericks icon collection for PPC, and it won't import to candybar. It just shows black icons when I import or drag anything in.
