You have a squad of ten marines with a Champion and Icon Bearer. Now eight of them are regular marines with thier regular stuff, one is a Champion with his bolt pistol and power weapon and finally you have the Icon Bearer, now my question is, does an Icon Bearer use a bolter, bolt pistol or the stuff regular marines use?

Ok, so Chaos marines come as standard with a bolter, bolt pistol and close combat weapon. In the case of the champion, you're swapping the close combat weapon for the power sword, and will sitll have the bolter and bolt pistol. In the case of the icon bearer, AFAIK you're not swapping out anything, you're just adding the icon. So he will have all his default weaponry.

Angry is correct, you do not swap anything on the bearer. The icon is just added so he retains his default wargear.

The above answers are correct, also there is a rules forum for just this kind of thing.
