    Select the icon you want, Get Info (cmd-I), click on the icon in the upper left corner of the Get Info window, copy (cmd-c) and close the window.

    Select the icon you want to change, Get Info (cmd-I), click the icon in the upper left corner of the Get Info window, paste (cmd-P). That should be it.

    If you want to change folders system wide, I'm not sure how to do that. Maybe someone else will.

    As long as you see the icon it does not matter what format it is as you can copy any visible icon and paste it.

    Just make sure in the get info windows that you have the icon in that window selected before copying and pasting, there should be a thin blue outline around the get info windows icon.
