all you have to do is find the file in finder, hit Command+I, click
on the little icon in the window that pops up (so it's highlighted in
a blue box) and Command+V to paste an icon (you can Command+C on
other icons to copy/paste them in the same way)
see finder's help for more info

Yes, of course, but that is not a good way to get high quality icons.
Manually setting up the resources gives you much finer control,
allowing you to specify different icons to use at different
resolutions. A good designer is still better than automatic scaling.
The downside to the old resource-based editing is that you cannot (I
think) get the OS X supersized 128x128 pixel icons in. It would be
nice to know if there were a way to do this.
