Yes, you set it like any other property and yes, it only applies to one 

If you had a field that had these characters in it:


and said

set the ImageSource of char 3 of fld 1 to "arrow"

then the character C in this field would be replaced by an image named 
"arrow". Depending on how big the image was, text around the image would 
be shifted to make room for the image.

The character "C" is still there, but hidden by the image. To get the 
character back you'd say:

set the imageSource of char 3 of fld 1 to empty
