I know how to summon demons, and know they must be summoned next to an Icon, but I'm unsure of what that icon is. Is it something from the armory, or is a passive ability goven when you take a mark of a patron god. That is, if I had a unit of noise marines, and tried to summon a squad of daemonettes, does the mark of Slaanesh count as an Icon? Thank you for any help.

I believe that any unit with a Mark Of Chaos gets an icon for the unit for free.
I do not criticize. I do not offend. All I offer is my opinion which means only as much as you make it.
A unit gets a free, basic icon for free for taking a Mark of Chaos - any Mark will do. The Icon is basically anything that seperates the model carrying it from the unit - a banner is most common, but isn't the rule. The Champion does not need to be the bearer of the Icon - any trooper can do. Since my units are mostly painted in Iron Warriors colors, I paint my Icon bearers in pure Gold. Nobody has ever had a problem with it. (They're usually tired of arguing with me that although my army is painted Iron Warriors scheme, they don't function like them.)
If you don't wish your units to have a mark, you can buy the Personal Icon from the armoury and give it to the Champion/IC.
There are six Special Icons that can be given only to Chosen units. Two can be found in the Chaos Armoury, and the other four are divided respectively amongst the Books of Chaos. They function like normal icons, except they have another special rule associated with them.
