You can display an icon next to the web part title as per your first screenshot by setting the "Title Icon Image URL" property under Advanced in the Web Part Toolpane.

  • Probably not. I had a quick look myself to see how you set that image. I'm not too sure myself as I can't see where it's set. Hopefully someone else will know...

  • I think the only way to customize the second url is by using WebPartGalleryItemBase.IconUrl when adding a <WebPartAdderExtension>. Read more about those on my blog here sites.wizdim.com/andersrask/sharepoint-2010/… or @Wictor 's blog here Commented Aug 26, 2011 at 20:54
