If I use a symbol from internet (as png let’s say) I get white area around the symbol. Can I delete pixels or something? Should I use some other program for editing pictures?

You need to use an application that supports transparent PNGs (and be sure that you export your images with transparency). Here are several free suggestions (from simple to more complex):

Related, if you already have images containing non-transparent areas that you need to be transparent, you’ll need to edit them (in something like mentioned above) and erase the areas you want to be transparent.
