Is that possible to do? If so, how can I do that? Is there any tool for that?

emoticons.plist with the property editor.
Add an entry
fpr for your smiley. Name the object as the file name with .gif in the animated folder and .png in the regular folder. Add the strings that you want to appear as the smiley and as the name equivalents.

Save and relaunch Skype.
