The buddy icon selector in the buddy list window is for all your accounts.
If you want per-account buddy icons look in the Modify Account dialog for
those accounts.

I have no idea what you mean about choosing an icon but if you can't
navigate a file selection dialog I'm not sure I can really help with that.

As you may have noticed had you spent any time actually trying to look up
the information for any of these questions yourself you likely would have
succeeded. In the future please do that before writing four emails

This really isn't acceptable behaviour. We aren't here to do your thinking
for you.
