    Is there a way to create folders with the specialized icons like the ones in the Home Folder, eg a Music Folder with the music icon, Picture folder with the "watermark" camera icon?

    If you make your own image and replace the standard folder icon you can.

    I found some freeware/shareware programs that have some good-looking icons on folders but I was hoping to get the same look as Snow Leopard special folders. Is there a way to just copy the special (Documents, Music, Pictures, etc.) folders in the Home Folder and use it else where?

    Yes.

    1. Choose "Get Info" on the folder having the icon you want to copy.
    2. Click on the icon, and press Command+C on the keyboard.
    3. Choose "Get Info" on the folder you want to receive the copied icon.
    4. Click it's icon, and and press Command+V.
