    Drag and drop from your Applications folder. Right click and choose Display as: Folder to get your Downloads or whatnot to look the same all the time.

    If you want different icons for the dock, try this site. http://interfacelift.com/icons-mac/

    They have wallpaper, docks, and folders. And they post instruction on changing the docks and soforth

    Right click (or cmd click) your stacks on the dock and under the "Display As" heading choose "Folder". This will only really work for folders that look unique, like Documents, Music, Movies, Apps, etc. Normal folder will look just like normal foldera dn you wont be able to tell them apart this way.

    Yes, you certainly can use any icons you wish-- or design your own to be part of a consistent theme if you desire! ;)
