If you long press on the dock icons it allows you to change the icon(stock launcher) with a poor assortment of choices. My questions is how can we add more and better ones.

Try some of the free icon packs in the Play Store, the reason I say free is I'm not sure they will work with the stock launcher. I'm using an alternative launcher and have change all of my icons.

In using a alternative launcher are you able to use the Knock On to turn the device on?

I got some PNG files with a transparent background and replaced the phone icon. Works just fine. I've got my eye out for some nice ones for all other icons. I wish there was a faster way to change them but I'm happy with being able to do it in the first place.

I have Nova launcher and the Knock On works, the Knock Off only works if you tap the notification bar - I think it's the same for 3rd party launchers, but I dunno for sure...
