I have a cPanel server and my own nameservers and an app running at heroku.

What I want is to use my cPanel account for mail and point my 'www' to APPNAME.heroku.com I've figured out that this can be done in the DNS settings for a domain, but i don't know how to configure this.

You setup a CNAME in DNS for the www resource record in your zone to point to <appname>.heroku.com, and then you need to tell Heroku to serve your content for that domain by following the Heroku-provided instructions (in fact, that article answers your entire question).
