I was hoping I could replace the default emoticons with specific "themed" emoticons that I have (ie: star wars), but I can't figure out how. 

Is there any way to add a feature/option so that people could remove and/or replace them?

That feature already exists. Go to your Control Panel and open up Style Tools and at the bottom you will see Emoticons. Just replace the default urls with that of your own choosing. If you made custom emoticons you can upload them to your files and use the url from that. If you make emote icons I suggest not using gif like the default rather use PNG as the image format as you can have transparent backgrounds around the round edges, otherwise depending on the site theme you will have a white square background behind the smiley.

Good luck!

Doesn't that just add to the ones that are already there? 

There's 120 in my drop-down box, but only 50 or so in the control panel with slots for urls.

yes those are flash animated smileys that are installed in guildportal and the ones in the control panel are the static images that you can replace with custom smileys.

Yeah exactly, so I'm saying it would be nice if you could just turn them off 

I have 178 star wars emoticons that I wanted to put in there and it would look much better if I could have only the star wars emoticons showing up.
