I would love to know if there is any way to change the background behind the virtual keys from black to something else. I've looked through the systemUI.apk and I don't see where I would do that.

It should be easy to change the icons/background. I was thinking about replacing these icons with some better ones as I don't really like black/grey theme, but couldn't find any nice ones (wasn't looking too hard either...)

Its pretty easy to change the backgrounds really. As the thread above states, just drag out the ic_sysbar_highlight.png button. Open it in Photoshop, add the desired image fine you want, set it to the back and allign, save it, put it back in the res\Drawable-xhdpi folder and flash. There ya go.

That only changes the button press right? Instead of the blue circle when you press a virtual key you get an image? Because that's what the file they replace with the mod is for.
