What's up with the emotion "strings"? Is it some kind of code?

The emotion strings are code, yes. They are the code for each of those images on the bottom bar, as they would be if you "hacked" an rtf file with pictures in it. Either way, the text for a smiley is found by the rich edit object through an event using the Special object's Find string in string action. Then it sets the rich edit to find and select that string and then paste an image into its place. You can paste using the Screen Capture object to take a picture (like I did) or use the Power System object to send external images to the clipboard, and probably other objects as well.

That example uses a fast loop to do it, which is okay. Mine uses Find string in string (as I mentioned earlier) like so:
Find(GetText$( "Conversation", 0, GetNChars( "Conversation" )), "", 0)=""

Which requires only one event, whereas the fastloop required two. Then it selects that text, uses the Screen Capture object to take a picture of the applicable emoticon, pastes that to the clipboard, then pastes it into the selected text.

If I was confusing (because I probably was) then I'd be happy to clarify.

so do I have to somehow edit each string, or make a string for each icon?

You don't have to use strings if you don't want to, although you obviously can, by that example. You have a number of ways you can do it. If you want to do it internally by image, then you can make each emoticon a separate object and have the Screen Capture object take pictures of them and paste them to the clipboard like I did (make sure the Screen Capture object is above the emoticons and that there is nothing between them and the SCO or below the emoticons). Otherwise you can use external image files by using the Power System object to paste an external image file to the clipboard and then paste it from there.

when using the screen capture object, can you capture one active (including transparency) or should I just add a white background behind then and then capture that?

Also is it possible to restrict the player from stretching the icons while they're in the rich edit box?

You should probably put a background behind it or just leave the frame itself behind it. Also, you should probably have read-only on so they shouldn't be able to stretch the image.
