Is it possible to set a custom icon for gnome-terminal, maybe dependent on the profile. I often have many terminal windows open and it gets a bit tricky to distinguish between them.

I often have many terminal windows open and switch between them with alt-tab. Right now, they are all shown as the black "utilities-terminal" icon. I would like to customize the icons so I can easily switch between them - how?
I've tried creating custom .desktop entries and changing the Icon there. But, that only changes the icon to launch the terminal.
I am using gnome-terminal in LXDE. When I have several gnome-terminal windows open, after some time the cursor in the inactive window starts to blink as well, as if the inactive window was actually active.
This only happens with gnome-terminal. Other terminal emulators such as LXTerminal work fine.

I have a gnome-terminal profile created with "When the command exists: Hold the terminal open" set. How can I avoid the yellow message at the top of the gnome-terminal window that states "The child process exited normally with status 0."?
Below are the contents of the desktop entry I have pinned to the Unity launcher.
In Gnome 2.x launching a Terminal was as easy as right clicking on the desktop.
Is there a way to get that back?
Secondly, when I click the Terminal icon in the Activities dock thingy, unless I select new from the menu, it simply makes an existing window active. Is there a way to change that so that all I have to do is click on the icon to get a new terminal?
