I am using fire n ice template which uses off.gif and on.gif that blinks is there is a new post. Where in the code does this reside so, I can change it to show the blinking "new" icon (or at least make the blinking brighter so, it draws the user's attention).

I tried to drop in a flame icon into /public_html/yabbfiles/Templates/Forum/fire_n_ice adn rename it on.gif so, it would toggle between the flame and the off.gif but, still showing only toggle between on/off.gif which is not a big color diff.

Err, if I've understood you right...

You're correct that all you need to do is overwrite them in the image directory to change them to images of your choice, but the on.gif is an animated gif, so it won't toggle itself magically between the two. You'll need to make your own image or get one off the net if you want it flashing.

Animation Shop is free and easy if you want to have a go at making your own:
