Adding new folder icons

When adding a new folder to the home screen there is the option to change its color and have it with or without a symbol. I don't like these boring options. My question is, is there a way to change the "extra" folder icons to ones that I choose to add to the BB when either creating a new theme, through the DM or another way by installing the new icons directly on the BB? And how can I do that if it is possible? I would really like to get away from the current folder selections. 


Thanks for any help.
