Coloring, Light Effects & Blending into Black

Hi! I'm not new to Photoshop but I was wondering if you could help me with a few things.

I would like to know how to achieve the coloring and light effects on the first icon and how to blend the black at the bottom of both icons that perfectly with the rest of the image (the second icon shows this more clearly, I think). I've tried using textures and brushes for this but the contrast between the black part and the color of the icons always comes out very harsh. I wanted to recreate the "smoothness" of the b&w icon. Perhaps I just didn't use the right texture, I don't know. I appreciate all the help you might give me. I hope I made myself understood clearly. Thanks in advance!
