i want to create my own program launcher, so I want to show the application icons of the apps I want to start. Is there any possibility to load an icon resource of a database?

There isn't currently a direct way to draw an icon from another app. You could copy the icon resource to a bitmap resource in a temporary database (since the icon and bitmap formats are identical), and then draw that bitmap by id.
