I merged my
game.love file and the
love.exe with the command
copy /b love.exe+app.love game.exe. But the resulting executable has the default LÖVE2D icon.
Is there a way to change that icon to another one?

I don't know much about Love so I don't know if there is a built-in way, but you can change the icon of an executable file using a variety of icon editing software. Last time I did this in days of yore my weapon of choice was IconForge but I'm sure there are other tools available now (like these).
The steps below are also covered in a video tutorial (icon topic starts at 2:22).
