If you mean the trash thing you sould search the theme's files and icons and change it from there ( remember to save it using the same name, as it is in the theme )

And buy the way,, There is alot of things you can change if you play on that theme trick .

if you want something to change in the interface ( as an extra )
You can go to :
/usr/share/
There's alot of things you are able to change .
If you use redhat you can change the main menu icon as an excample .

What I mean 'device icon on desktop' is referred to such entries as 'unmount cdrom' and 'unmount floppy' icons on kde desktop. I don't like the default names of them, and I just want them to have the names to be 'cdrom' and 'floppy' respectly.
