In my Pokemon HG I sold them all, so will or can I get some more? And why do we need incenses to breed Pokemon?

If you sell all of them, unfortunately you are unable to get any more. As for why you need them for breeding; that's just the way the game is, there is no real explanation. Game Freak has chosen to put them in the game and to breed certain Pokemon you require them.

As Saz said, you cannot get the Incenses again in-game, there is no place to buy them. You will have to trade them from another game.

The reason that Incenses are needed to breed Pokemon in Generation 4 is because the baby Pokemon were introduced in that Generation, their "adult forms" were already available in previous generations.

It wouldn't really make sense to for example breed a Snorlax in Gen 3 and get a Snorlax, but breed a Snorlax in Gen 4 and get a Munchlax. So that's why the incense is required.
