1. Install acer recovery installer from market. This apk is free.
2. Keep with you the .zip or .image file of recovery which you want to install and place it in sd card.
3. Run the apk and select install from sd card.
4. If apk do not detect .zip file in your sd card than extract recovery.image from that file and store it in sd card.

You can get custom recovery files from tegraowners.com or any other custom recovery in development section.

The real answer is if you have ICS, to install a custom recover or custom kernel you must have an unlocked bootloader.

The following resources are related to the new bootloader, a quick read of the OPs of the first two are highly recommended, even if you install with the third link. (This is to have a highlevel idea of what you are changing on your device, as it will help you find what you need to look closer at in future if something goes wrong, or possibly prevent a problem in the first case)
bootloader thread
civato's guide
Afterota tool (windows users bootloader install tool)

If you already have the unlocked bootloader installed, but can't boot into recovery:

This is likely because you have a stock ICS rom overwritting recovery with the stock recovery in every boot; either use fastboot or (if you have root) a program such as acer recovery installer to force the install of a recovery and immediately reboot into it. (Most bootloader installers will also install a recovery that you can immediately boot into)

Once in recovery you can backup/restore/or install a rom modified to prevent the overwrite of recovery. (More advanced users can stop this from adb by removing some files)

Personally I use a lightly modified version of the stock rom you are using now:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1661492

it ought to be safe to do a no wipe update to that and receive a more expected environment with a custom recovery, optional custom OC kernel, and busybox support.

However if you explore the dev section, many other (both more and less modified) versions of ICS roms exist. Themed and otherwise. So feel free to explore.
Dream Sapphire:
> Radio 2708+ (+15MB kernels)
> MT3G ota froyo rom dream sapphire port
> ezGingerbread (rom/source): Dream/Sapphire
> DS JTAG: Soft load of SPL (to unbrick/re-root) / JTAG WIKI


Acer A500:
> ezT20 kernel A500 and A100
> A500 Public Recovery (Clockwork Mod based recovery + source for the A500)
> Acer A500 ICS Rooted w/ Busybox
> Acer_A500 OTA 7.014.14 --HC 3.2.1-- Rooted w/ Busybox
