Pleaseeeee can someone point me in the right direction for the simplest way to change my dock icons on the bottom to text icons. I've downloaded a bunch of launchers. Minimalistic text and some other stuff but can't figure it out. I just want a clean looking screen with text icons..

Which launcher(s) do you have? If it's ADW, all you have to do is long press the dock icon you want to change and tap edit. I believe it's the same process for LP too.

If you have Launcher Pro:
You will have to download the icons that you would like to your gallery. There are several @ this link:
Icon Packs – droidpirate.com

If the icon you need is not there you will need "Photoshop" to modify the text to whatever you would like it to read. There are several there so chances are it is already made.

With Launcher pro you long press on the icon you would like to change and select "Change icon", then select "Custom icon", this takes you to your gallery where you should have already uploaded the icons.You can also download custom docks there as well. You should end up with something similar to this:

I am not familiar with "Bettercut", but to resize you need to open in photo shop and experiment with different font sizes. There is a limit to how large of an image you can have on the dock. I think it is 74x74, but don't quote me on that.
