I am working on Sharepoint 2010 and I have created a custom list. I set the default "Title" field as "hidden" and I am wondering how I can attach the "NEW" icon to a specific field for which I want to track the new records.

You'll need to create a new display, usually with a data view web part. Within the XSLT, you can add this code:

<xsl:if test="ddwrt:IfNew(string(@Created))">
    <img src="/_layouts/1033/images/new.gif" alt="New" />

Which will display the New! icon for you.
