htaccess or handlers, setting a default web icon maybe

I have heard that there is some way to set a default favicon for non-HTML files maybe using .htaccess or a file handler. File (Apache) handlers are a bit out of like my league but if I could I would increase default font size also. Main thing is how to have a default favicon set.

Here is a twist, I find like a GIF, PNG, GIF declaration in HTML works almost everywhere, could I in .htaccess have like declare GIF, PNG, GIF icon for compatibility and not raise errors? I am on shared DirectAdmin hosting with asurahosting.com hosting gugquettex.com.

I am kind of scared to try .htaccess stuff. I do not suppose this would interfere with loading file contents but am unsure. Main question, on raw hosting, how to set a favicon for default and secondary, how to have GIF main but PNG for compatibility? I know favicon.ico loads auto, any other way? There is not two favicon.ico. X E.

What you might need is something like this:
Code:
RewriteEngine On 
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f 
RewriteCond favicon.ico 
RewriteRule .* favicon.ico [L]
or if that doesn't work,
Code:
RewriteEngine On 
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule "^(.+)favicon\.ico(|\?.+)$"  "/favicon.ico" [PT]

For context, I did a bit of looking and found that on stackoverflow,
 
Solution
Yeah, I was looking for a way to do like one but if that does not work do another. It looks like that is not possible. Anyway, I expect stack overflow to be with creative commons and anyway that is still one logo. I guess just having a favicon.ico is what I can do. I was trying for how text displays from a file doing like add custom icon code to generated HTML like GIF, PNG, GIF. Looks impossible. X E.
