How to create Icon for notification taskbar?

Hi, i am trying to customize taskbar icons in notification area, specifically the icon internet connection, i opened pnidui.dll file in Resource Hacker tool and found that 3048:1033 icon has following sizes and colors:

32 32 (16 colors) - Ordinal name: 379
24 24 (16 colors) - Ordinal name: 380
20 20 (16 colors) - Ordinal name: 381
16 16 (16 colors) - Ordinal name: 382
32 32 (256 colors) - Ordinal name: 383
24 24 (256 colors) - Ordinal name: 384
20 20 (256 colors) - Ordinal name: 385

how to create the icon from png 32x32 with so many different icons?

I tried to convert png to ico, but it only created this sizes:

16 16 (16.8mil colors) - Ordinal name: 379
24 24 (16.8mil colors) - Ordinal name: 380
32 32 (16.8mil colors) - Ordinal name: 381
48 48 (16.8mil colors) - Ordinal name: 382
32 32 (16.8mil colors) - Ordinal name: 383

after replacing pnidui.dll file, taskbar does not show internet connection icon at all

as i understand it is becuse my icon doesnt have all sizes and colors, could you please advise a tool that can convert 32x32 png to ico with all set of size and colors?
