This can be easily done, I've integrated lately similar functionality in WineBottler.
If You already have the png only the sipping part of this little script is needed.

#!/usr/bin/env bash
PATH_TO_EXECUTABLE=$(echo "$PATH_TO_EXECUTABLE" | sed s'/\\/\//g')
MAINICON=$(echo $(wrestool -l --type=group_icon "$PATH_TO_EXECUTABLE") | awk '{print $2}' | sed 's/--name=//')
MAINICON=$(echo $MAINICON | sed s/\'//g)
rm /tmp/MAINICON.ico &> /dev/null
wrestool -x --type=group_icon --output=/tmp/MAINICON.ico --name=$MAINICON "$PATH_TO_EXECUTABLE" &> /dev/null
sips -s format icns /tmp/MAINICON.ico --out "$PATH_TO_ICON" &> /dev/null
rm /tmp/MAINICON.ico &> /dev/null
