I have created a shortcut by creating a symbolic link on Mac. Is it possible to add icons for the same?

The icon for the symbolic link will be the same as the icon of the original object. Are you creating the shortcut for an application (.app bundle) or for a document?

For an application, the application should have an appropriate ICNS file and it should be described in Info.plist file.

Creating .app bundles and bundle structure is described in more details in Bundle Structures section of developer's documentation from Apple.
