I've Google searched, and searched my phone for all png, bmp and jpg files. I can't find anything.

If I want to view or replace certain Android images, where would I find them?
For example, the wifi icon picture that shows in the status bar.

(Android 4.4.2 Note 3, rooted with Cyanogenmod.)

These images are packaged into .apk files. These apk files are then stored in /system/app or /system/priv-app

For this you will need to learn Android device themeing. The images aren't standalone and they are present in specific files. The file or files you are looking for is the framework-res.apk or systemUI.apk.

If you need help with theming let me know.
