Start with an arbitrary node:

 

Step 1: Select the label (using CTRL+click)

 

Step 2: Click into the "Icon Properties" field in the properties view in yEd's lower right corner

 

Step 3: Click on the "Icon" button control (labeled "No Image" here) in the icon properties dialog.

 

Step 4: Choose "More" from the displayed popup menu.

 

Step 5: Choose the desired icon file in the opened file chooser and click "Ok".

 

Step 6: Click "Ok" in the icon properties dialog.

 

The result will look like this:

The propeties in the icon properties dialog may be used to determine icon size and position (in relation to icon's text).
