Highlight the file, press Apple-I, or go to File -> Get Info, click the icon in the top left, and paste on whatever you want it to be (that has to already be on the Clipboard)...
If thats what you mean.
If you mean changing an applications owner icon of its files, then that gets more complicated, but nothing too hard http://forums.macnn.com/cgi-bin/smile.gif
You just need to delve into the realm of ResEdit...
