    Default I accidentally deleted the "settings" icon from home screen.

    I can still access settings through spotlight search but want to have the icon appear on my home screen.

    When you look at it in spotlight, it should tell you at the right side of the screen what folder it might be in... go to that folder, and move it to the home screen if that's where you want it... the Settings icon can't be deleted... just moved to a folder.

    It's either in a folder as stated above or on another screen page.

    Are you sure it's deleted? Did you check all the folders?

    To clarify, when you go to the App Store and look for the Google App, if it says OPEN next to it, that it's on your phone, and most like hiding in one of your folders. If there is a cloud with an arrow symbol next to it, that tells you that you did delete it, and by tapping the cloud symbol, it will reinstall!
