For modifying the icon, I am not sure how you can do it in C, but I do know of a way to do it in TI-BASIC using the Celtic (monochome) libs.

Code:
PROGRAM:ICON

:DCS
"AA55AA55AA55AA55 //checker icon
"0->Str1
det(21,Str1,0,42 //put " in Str1
Input "ICON:",A
If A
Then
  det(8,"ICON",Str1+"FF818181818181FF",2 //put box icon on line 2 of this file
Else
  det(8,"ICON",Str1+"AA55AA55AA55AA55",2 //put checker icon on line 2
End

If you can find a way to get the address of the start of your file, it shouldn't be too bad to write over the icon data.
This is in C. I guess I'll need to open the variable, get to the icon field, and over write the data with the new icon. Though the program is compressed. Not sure if that includes the icon.
Picked this back up. Working on themes. You can select the theme you'd like, and it updates the icon!



Colors are off because of palette stuff, but this is the proof of concept!

Also got the code up onto github:

That's pretty sweet! I don't know if I've seen another program change it's icon like that, but I like it~
I wonder if that would be a nice feature to add to my CosmoCE game, with there being a tally of how many runs you have completed in the corner! Possibly just one pixel that changes color as the number gets higher, but still :3
Looks cool; the modern theme is awesome, but retro carries a lot of charm!

I just took a look at your code for this and it is super simple and easy to understand. I think I will definitely be adding a dynamic icon of some kind to my game!
