Windows 7: How do I make an installer for other System files?

How do I make an installer for other System files?

I've been a fan of both Virtual Customs and CreativX for some time and from my experience browsing and downloading custom theme stuff, I have seen an installer for IconPacks that basically backs up and swaps out certain System files (imageres.dll, shell32.dll, imagesp1.dll, zipfldr.dll) to give you new system icons. Credit for the installer was given to a local member by the name of Generator.

As my thread title goes, my question here is: Does anyone know any reason why this same installer or similar could NOT be used for other System files? For example, Say I wanted to swap out, or customize my Shellbrd.dll, timedate.cpl, wmploc.dll, etc, etc. Could you not just edit this script to include only the files, or .dll's you wanted?

There are a lot of images in some of these other .dll's that are being customized now a days to pimp your system and most of them you have to do the manual way.

I hope this is the correct sub forum to post, and I'm guessing there are others besides Generator that have this expertise, but if I knew how to tag /mention him I would first.. BTW, I'm currently using 7Ultimate 64bit. Thanks in advance..
