If you mean to use this feature to implement custom items on WoW clients newer than 3.2.2a, forget it.

Blizz patched later client versions with hard-coded links to the items in the DBC files. You can still use custom items, but it requires reusing deprecated item IDs of the same type. So, if you wanted a custom dagger, you'd have to find an unused ID for a dagger that is no longer in the game.

You'll still have the problem of custom items appearing in the game's UI with a large, red question mark as its icon. To my knowledge, there is no way to fix this except by using a UI add-on that overrides this behavior by forcing the client to use a specified icon.

So you want to disallow item_template from overriding the values in the DBCs? That's what that option is talking about.

Or you want the opposite, to override DBC values with item_template values? You can't do that, the client will just ignore them. You would have to patch the client, which, as Nuke said, is discouraged.
