U haven't given the right info about what roms etc that ur using so they can't really help u.

If by gapps u mean the app drawer that can be changed in adw launcher. As far as settings I think u have to do a framework edit?

No one knows this?

I know that adw can make transparency in the drawers and have the wallpaper of your home screen. it's in the drawer settings -> background color (pick a color then adjust alpha) other than this, I think there's another home launcher that can change drawer bg, i cant remember which one...

Check calum's sticky in the theme forum to get familiar with theming in general.

In 2.1, the framework-res.apk you mod is at system/framework/framework-res.apk
Not sure about 2.2, as there are several roms (which 1?) out there & I haven't tried any...
Anyway, find your framework-res.apk & push it to your computer. Now open it up with 7-zip or winrar. Then look in the res/drawable/drawable-hdpi folder (that's in 2.1, may be named differently in 2.2) for the image you want to change by how it is named and the way it looks (dimensions, color,etc). Then take the image you want to replace it with (make sure it has the same dimensions & extension) and drag it into the open archive(apk). Click OK then close the apk. Push it back to your phone & reboot. Sometimes backgrounds will be in other apps in system/app (2.1) for the messaging BGs, etc.

Hope that helps.
