If you mean you want to change the image of notification pull-down from black to a custom one, then yes it's very easy through Xposed modules.

Through this module - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2342570

I believe this comes pre-installed in GENNXT, along with the Xposed Framework.
All you have to do is,
1. enable (or install if you removed it) the Xposed Framework.
2. reboot
3. install and enable the module
4. change the image
5. reboot or restart SystemUI

If you don't know what Xposed Framework is, here's the original thread, you can read through it : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1574401

Actually, I would like change the whole view. Not the background. Something like switching the current touchwiz pulldown to something like that of cyanogenmod pull down for example. I hate the toggles in the pull down. And of course, something new is always better. Please do not suggest that flash cyanogenmod because I would like to have the dual sim feature.

Why would I suggest you flash a different ROM when you are specifically asking for themeing/modding the stock TW?

I get the toggles on stock look bad and dated, when I was on stock, I was using a combination of Xposed modules to completely change the notification pulldown view.
Basically everything can be themed there,

XBattery Themer - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2516074
Has a wide wariety of battery themes, but this one is for battery only

XBackground - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2342570
For notifcation and settings (includes install screen background) background

XQuick Settings Toggles Themer - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2363938
This is the main one you need. This is specifically for themeing the notification toggles like Wi-Fi, Data icons etc.
My personal favorite is the Vicino (check spelling) theme, it has a faded white toggle that turns blue on active
Sample theme - Click image for larger version

Lastly, you can use Wanam to hide things like "No Notification" as well as to theme the notifications, toggles and notification pulldown in any color, gloss or gradient you want. You can even change the font and style of Date and clock and their positions.
Wanam - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2383484

Similar features are also available in XBlast but Wanam is TW specific so it work more efficiently.
XBlast - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2294419

All these toggles have been personally tested and confirmed working by me on 4.2.2 stock TouchWiz
Some of these modules might already be available in GENNXT but since there has been no recent release of the ROM, I would recommend you remove them as system applications and re-install them as apks for the current themes that might be available in them.

All of these with more modules are listed on this page I gave you before - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2327541
Check post #2 for full list of Touchwiz modules.

That's great really. But can I also ask you this? How do I completely remove the quick toggles in the notification pulldown? Sorry if it is a dumb question.

No I haven't come across any mod to completely remove them from notification toggle.
You can only theme them, you can change how many notifications you want (3, 5, 6) but I don't think you can remove them.
Wanam lets you hide the text and on/off notification line under them, but that's about it

I haven't used stock TW for over 2 months now, so maybe Wanam might have added the option, but as far as I know there is no module to remove them completely from the notification panel
