If it is working properly now the only way you can change them would be to change them on the Photobucket account.   You would have to for instance delete afro.gif and upload a new afro.gif

rename the smileys on your computer THEN upload them to Photobucket so you dont have to go thru renaming them on there.  If you have more trouble with the guide read the Troubleshooting section near the end of it..it'll help ya

When you put your photobucket url in as the base url the forum is going to look there for the album with the smileys in it.   
The default smileys can not show up at the same time.
This guide shows you how to replace those smileys... there is no way to add to them.
If you decide to put the default ones back the guide tells you near the end of it how to do so.

There IS a way to create multiple sets on your Photobucket acct....   I'll have to figure out a way to explain it so its easy to understand.    By doing so you could swap between those sets -  maybe have a christmas set, etc.   (you still can only have the same number and only one set showing at a time)

Photobucket renames files you upload if you already have one by the same name  ;)
(unless you paid for Photobucket and use ftp - then you can copy over the files)
You'll have to delete the azn.gif you already have on there before uploading the new one.

why is this such a comlicated process can you just have a browse files double click the smiley from you file upload it add a code and done?

I cant get them to work but my photobucket account is set up different

my halloween smileys are a sub-sub-sub section of my account

In other words:

Main Page - Website - Smileys - Halloween Smileys

does the code need altering since it isnt a direct sub album of photobucket?

And is there a way to add more smileys to posts if so how would you get the smiley codes ex/ :roll45:
