I am creating a favicon via Inkscape using "icon_16x16". I would like to put a border around the image and fill it in with another color. I have attempted to use the "square and rectangle" tool but soon found that I did not like the stroke size.

Is there any way I can adjust the width of the stoke?

Stroke style

Stroke width can be changed by using the Stroke style tab in the Fill and Stroke dialog, or by using the Style Indicator via a pop-up menu or by Stroke gestures.
