Hello,
I am developing a chat application in C# where I want to send/recieve

Is there a way to implement this feature?

The way that all IM protocols do it that I've ever had a look at, is to
implement the interpretation of the various string shortcuts of the icons
locally. So if somebody sends a message containing the string :-), the
client will notice that when the message is displayed and show an image of
a smiley instead. That is actually a rather good idea, as it allows
various multi-protocol clients to use their own, possibly even replacable
icon sets.

Or were you asking something entirely different?
