Right click -> Properties, on Shortcut tab you can change the shortcut target, icon, name, etc... unless it's Windows Installer or other "special" shortcut which is handled differently.

Create a picture and save it as a .ico file. Then right click the object and then properties then click on customize and change icon. Browse to where you saved the image. If you don't see the image you didn't save it as a .ico file.

Edit: It's .ico not .icon my fault. Also, it must be in 24-bit bitmap.
