So I need to know which entities are a part of NpcStream. I intend to make it so they don't give any XP.

NPC 197 - Porcupine (even though they're pufferfish)
NPC 335 - Ikachan

The Function List and entityInfo.txt are your best friends.

Thank you for your help. (I'm still learning how modding Cave Story works.)

modding the game is basically done with a program called booster's lab (or cave editor), there's a bunch of guides around

for your second question, yes! there are plenty of mods, take a look through the showcase page on here or this site

you don't need to apply the mods, they're standalone programs - just unzip and run the Doukutsu.exe like you would the original freeware

uhh, as for guides, unless someone else wants to recommend one, this is the first one i found

I HAVE been learning how to edit Cave Story. And let me tell you, it's not easy.
PLEASE answer these four 'questions' of mine.

WHY does my game not load images I saved in Microsoft Paint. It instead 'crashes' to boot.

HOW do the camera and CRASH entities work.

WHERE can I find how to edit doors. They are the 'Bane' of my Existence. Much like Metroid Hacking.

I assume you're using Cave Editor and the (C) Pixel Requirement hasn't been disabled. You can either find that in Game Settings or just open it with Booster's Lab and save (it does that automatically).
HOW do the camera and CRASH entities work.
The CRASH entities are essentially what is written in their names. Really, most of them require a parent entity for them to not crash. If you go in the CSMC Discord Server and ask Thomas Xin (or Rainbow Critter) for a list of them, I'm sure he may provide you with one.

I'm actually kinda surprised that list isn't in @BLink 's super modding guide thread...
Link is here.

So it's a minor problem but I need help with the following: On Resource Hacker, I can replace the icons via right click and Replace Icon. The problem is, I don't know what the correct file format is and I've never replaced the icon before.

You'll need a .ico file for that. Pretty sure you can convert a PNG to .ico with ease if you use an online converter. At least that's how I did it.
You can also try following this thread.

If you use paint.net there also exists a filetype plugin to export to .ico.
Might be just a bit faster.

Thank you both for your help and now my mod has a nice custom logo to go with it.

Nice, I don't think we've had a mod like that for years, now that I think of it.

Question: If I make Title.pbm and/or Fade.pbm larger, will that cause any issues with the title screen/fade effect? If there's no consequences to this I'm planning on putting some entity sprites on those sheets.

There will be no problems with making the Title screen bitmap larger as long as you use the Title Screen hack used in Booster's Lab, as long as it fits within the window resolution (depends if you're using Mod Loader or not). As for Fade.bmp however, I don't think there's actually a confirmed hack for that, and you will need to adjust it's framerects in order to make it bigger (the top 16 pixels in the bitmap are what's being used).

On NpcRegu.pbm, Santa has a sprite of him looking behind himself (like Quote's when the player presses down). Is this sprite unused?
