Ok to do want you wish you have a two part process

First use one of the suggestions above to convert the .PNG files you have to .ICO files

Once you have done this you then need to use an application such as ResourceHacker to replace the .ico files embedded in the programs .exe or .Dll files with the new .ico files you have created

I think someone mentioned Irfanview, this is a freedownload image editor. all you do is right click on your png file then open with Irfanview and then click save as and in the dropdown for filetype there is an ico for windows icons. hope this helps
