    Check out InsertMenuItem, CreateMenu, CreatePopupMenu, DestroyMenu, TrackPopupMenuEx

    For .ico files I use photoshop.

    Windows handles item selection, if your menu is ownerdraw windows sets the ODS_SELECTED flag of DRAWITEMSTRUCT.itemState of an item if the mouse is in menuWidth x itemHeight of an item (sorry if that's somewhat cryptic, wasn't sure how to word it)
