Name this file maybe my-add-stars-to-comments.php and put it into the /wp-contents/plugins/ folder. Then activate it from the plugins menu in your administration panel.

If you want to show your own image replace the span-element (line 14) maybe to this:

$elements[] = ' <img src="" alt="stars" />';

If you want to show the star when upvotes are more than 10, replace line 13 with:

if ( $rating >= 10 ) {
