Experts how to edit .icon file?

Hello,

I would like to know how can i edit an .icon file i am having.
I was not able to open it under adobe photoshop.

Also, i would like if an expert can help me here - I like to give the .icon file and you can change color of it and upload and secondly, i will provide a jpeg file if you can convert it directly into .icon format.

I hope to receive some help here.
