the best way to learn is to download such a shader and taking a look at its hypershade graph to see how the nodes stack together to create the effect.

Default Ice Shader

Second possibility is, to stick together your own shading network...use some of the shading utilities, like sampler info aso.

maybe, you can't create the look you want, but get a good idea of the way they work together....just play around a bit...it's great fun...believe me....

OK!
Now, I found a shader that looks nearly like the one that I want to create but how Do I import the shader in the hypergraph?
Sorry for that post

-> Import is really easy to use...

in the hypershade window, go to File > Import. Choose the .ma or .mb file and import it in. Should appear in your list of materials.
