For title, FindWindow or EnumWindows, and SendMessage with WM_SETTEXT.
For icon, I'd guess WM_SETICON.

You should provide more information of what exactly you wanna do.
For example, you can just inject those messages (WM_SETTEXT, WM_SETICON) into a target program, then redirect programs flow to your code and return back then.
Else you can apply 'hardcode' patch (find references to resources you wanna change with disasm and patch them) - this will give you program-dependend patcher.
To make universal patcher...
1. create process of a program to be patched
2. get text of window to be changed
3. if it is set via API call then find the place this API is called from and patch the reference to the text.
4. if it is hardcoded in the resources then you should patch resources (or inject your proc to change windowtext at init time)
