Just copy the old smileys over to ~/.purple/smileys/<folder> or follow any
of the other methods at [1]. Edit the theme file and rename it to something
other than "Default". (re)start pidgin, and select your theme in the prefs

I didn't bother to check, but I'm sure a Google or two will find you a
usable tarball of the theme. If that's the case, you can just drag and drop
the tarball onto the smiley prefs page.
