    How can I import icons from the internet into W8.1 so when I browse for "change Icon" I can find and use it.

    All you need to do is download the files then navigate to them. You can find a variety of sites that carry icon packages which include everything you need.

    You might also consider something like WindowBlinds by Stardock.
