Insert > Object > Create From File tab
Browse for the file you want to embed, click on the file then click Insert
Click Display as icon > OK

The icon can then be resized to fit the Excel cell

If you want the icon to 'stick' in the cell, right-click on the icon and select Format > Properties tab
Select Move and size with cells > OK
