I have the new Nautilus 3.6 installed and the new symbolic icons for Home and Trash don't fit with the rest of my icon theme. How would I be able to change these icons? Is there a certain name I must give to the files I want in my theme?

Yes they need to have a very specific name and a very specific color else they won't work. You can check them in /usr/share/gnome/scalable. Inside this folder are all the Gnome symbolic icons.
