No and No...

The 'Danny Phantom' icon is used to bypass nintnedo's firmware 'fix' that blocks flashcards (on DSi's).
Since DSLite/Phat don't have upgradable firmware - the acekard 'Danny Phantom Fix' isn't need - & so the normal ak icon is shown on those

UNLESS Acekard brings out a version of the 1.4 firmware fix that allows you to 'transplant' a game icon of your choice into the fix - there's no way of changing 'Danny Phantom'

1. Danny Phantom is there to make the DSi think it's an actual game.
2. Different games use slightly different algorithms (i don't think i used the right term) for each game. Because of this, the AK 1.4 updater would need to be modified for each and every game.

My cousin keeps a Danny Phantom Urban Jungle ROM on his Acekard to keep it "authentic". I'm not sure if he actually played it though.

on the dsi menu, press R so you can enter quick camera mode, then the acekard should appear as "acekard 2i"

Theoretically it'd be possible to change the game icon to that of another existing game.

http://hackmii.com/2010/02/lawsuit-coming-in-3-2-1/

This shows why an actual game icon is needed, and what data is involved. You could take the update file and transplant a different game's data/icon into it. Other flash carts and such use different icons, for example a fishing game, game and watch collection (which is the example in that guide), and roller coaster tycoon.

The problem is if something doesn't work you'll probably have a bricked acekard on your hands, so it'd make home development of a changer quite risky, and hard, since you'd need multiple cards in order to learn from your mistakes.
