Default icon picture coloring problem

Hello everyone,

I have an issue regarding coloring of inserted .png pictures which are used as icons in my letterhead document, and it really started to frustrate me. I created them in Illustrator (standard 3: email, phone, location) and exported as .png & inserted into my Word file.

Problem is when I want to change color I cant get the same one as the rest of the document graphics which I created using simple shapes, placed in header and footer. It's always darker or brighter version, even when editing corrections it's impossible to get the same. But it's important for me that every part of the document be available for easy editing & exact color changing. I've tried couple of ways by converting from pdf to docx but conversion is not that good, edges are all messed up and unusable.

I know that shapes are easy for color changing & always presented in full color version, so I was wondering is it possible to import custom shapes to Word? Or somehow to convert my .png icons to shape so that I can get propper color matching since leaving it as picture file isn't working. I saw that in one document where every single part was color editable as shape, just using fill
I am using Office 2016.

Thank you all for taking time to read this post!
All best!
