Make your decal in Photoshop. And apply the image via texture mapping.

This site has a lot of good tutorials for Lightwave:

You could reference this tutorial.

Going through the manual would also point you in the right direction.

decal to what?
The shape can be important as to what mode you map in.
A box could be planar. A cylinder would be cylindrical. A plane would be UV mapped.

The image can be a type with alpha information in it (32bit).
Or you can use a JPG but create a black and white version to use as a transparency map to hide all the unwanted parts.
