They're essentially direct draw surface images with a different header. Depending on what type of image you're going to edit, they'll also need to be swizzled. Decks must be swizzled.
There are tools for this. If you can create a targa image, index its color pallette, make it 32 bit again, save without RLE.
You should be able to use that image in defeat0rs tool.
Unfortunately defeat0rs tools are windows applications.

look for file
inside there should be tools 'tga2img' and 'img2tga'
use any image editor to edit a converted tga from img or create your own tga image.
use tga2img to convert them for use in game.

just a question, i cant make the files on the folder tga2img work because those seem to be only the source code, im wondering if i need like an .exe file to run those.

There should be a directory named defeat0r
Inside this directory are some container files
Look for the img2tga and tga2img for ug2 that doesn't have 'src' in the file name and it should have an exe inside.
