How do I define new file types

I have files <basename>.icn, which are for the Unicon programming language.
I have prepared Kate syntax highlighting definition, which among other things
specifies that the highlighting is to occur for mime type "text/x-unicon".
However I don't know any way to get KDE to create or recognize such a mime
Similarly, I have a constuction tool SCons, like make, which uses
textual specifications conventionally stored in files named "SConstruct".
("Sconstruct" is to SCons as "Makefile" is to make).
I would like to associate this file name with a new mime type, and then be
able to define a syntax highlighting specification for it as well as other
KDE type-dependent actions, which is chosen on the basis of the mime type.
How can I do this?
(I would just like to anticipate any objection that say, "text/x-unicon" is
not an "official" mime type: I have just checked the IANA mime type list, and
most of the mime-types associated with programming lanuage source code in
Kate highilghting system have mime types that are not on the IANA list.)
