    $\begingroup$ Hi. Please only ask one question at a time. Also, do you mean accessible by code or something else? And please make the title of the question descriptive of the actual problem, not the general topic. Thanks. $\endgroup$ Jan 27, 2020 at 17:29

As stated at developer.blender.org task toolbar icons are generated from a icon_geom.blend blend file and stored as actual 3D meshes. These are then rasterized into binary .dat icon files at compilation time and presented by the UI.

enter image description here

They are not part of the vector SVG icons created by jendrzych.

Duplicate icons are probably for use at different places in the UI. Either they were different before recent UI redesign and unified, or we might at some point in the future want to use different icons in different situations.
