If I want to replace one of the icon with some of the apps I use regularly?

Thanks

Agreed, can we delete some of the default App Icons completely?
And then be able to add our own Favourites to the list.

I will leave a little explanation for the problem above.

Apps that are not built for Android TV option, will only exist in My APP after installation.
However, it will convenient if App can run as shortcuts on the HOME screen
So here we explain how to make shortcut on the HOME screen.

1. Install the TV App Repo app from the Google Store.
Image

2. The following screen appears. We are going to create the shortcut on Leanback Launcher
Image

3. Scroll down to select "Leanback Shortcuts".
Image

4. Let's try to make shortcut with "Cappy Chick" app. Please select an app.
Image

5. If it is a game App, specify it as custom. If you are a regular app, select create shortcut immediately.
Image

6. Wait 10 seconds and the installation window will appear. Install it.
Image

7. The app is installed.
Image

8. "Happy Chick" App has been added to the game selection.
Image

Hope that will be helpful to add Icon to Leanback Launcher.

Leanback Launcher doesn't have a way to delete App Icons except deleting App.
You can add your APP from My App list like above explanation.
