You can add one via your profile page. Scroll down near the bottom to find this. You're able to select any image you want, although you might need to use photoshop (or any comperable photo editing software) to reduce the size of the image so that it is reasonable (I think 8X8 is the "limit").
There are no avatars hosted on this site (not yet, at least), so you'll have to find a place to host it that accepts 'hotlinking'. Geocities, Tripod and other free pages usually don't allow this. If you don't have your own domain/web hosting service, a free way to host your image is to sign up for a Photobucket account.
If you have any additional questions, I'd reccomend emailing the editor of this site.
Hope this helps!
