Where do I place a new icon set and how do I know the index number of the new icons. Sorry if the question is elementary but I just cant find the answer,

You can find icons and icon set all over the web. do a Google search for Rpg Maker MZ icon sets, you can also use MV icons if you like. https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/mz-iconset.127619/

There can only be one icon set in use at any time. Named: IconSet.png
It get read from your project > img > system


As far as icon number, open the Database > Items.
Double click on the icon area and on the bottom left has a number which corresponds to the icon currently selected.

just two comments on adding icons:
the iconset width is fixed and needs to be maintained, you can only add new icons at the bottom.

and while the length of the iconset can be anything, remember that it still needs to be loaded into RAM - if you create a really big iconset, that will slow down and lag your game. So only add icons that you really need.

And in case it's not obvious, you can only have one iconset, unless you are using a plugin that lets you have multiple. So you don't add a new iconset - you edit the existing one and add your new icons to the bottom, or you replace the existing one.

Then you'll be able to determine the index number by simply trying to add an icon to something, scroll down and select (or hover over?) your new icon.
