    Go Launcher or Launcher Pro or ADW Launcher

    I would like to change the 5 basic buttons usually on the bottom of the home screen.
    Usually the buttons are Dialer, Brower, Contacts, App list, Messaging, etc

    Is there a way for me to remove/replace some of those basic function buttons and replace it with something else in any of the 3 custom launchers mentioned above?

    thanks for your time

    Go Launcher allows for that, and it allows for the 3 scrolling docks like LP does...

    It takes a little work. Lp is the base.
    Dl minimalistic text for the battery widget, Clockr evolution for the date widget. The dock icons were made by going to droidpirate.com and going to launcher pro icons section. Dl the pack that you want and extract them on the sd. Now, on lp, long press on a dock icon and pick first change shortcut. Pick the app you want. Its icon will appear in the dock. Now it should say change icon in the same box (if not just long press on the newly changed icon). Choose custom icon. (the app quickpic works really good for this). It will or should take you to your folders. Find the icon pack you dl and choose the custom icon you want. Done!

    If you want a custom icon anywhere else on the home screen, you'll need to use the app "desktop visualizer", free in the market. Easy and fun

    hmm seems like they just change the icon images themselves..

    is there a way for me to completely change the function of the icon?

    for example, i want to remove the messaging icon and replace it with google voice. Remove the contacts and brower icon and just keep app drawer, dialer, and the gvoice mentioned above.

    Well you can totally switch out icons, but as far as getting rid of icons... Just long press the icon and click change shortcut. Just choose blank (red x) and it will remove it. Hope this helps.
    Basically, you can do what you asked above
