The start menu color will need to be edited at
Start Menu > Panels > Aero > Top (Highlighted in red)

The icon in the breadcrumbs I was able to change it to a transparent .ico, I made a 256x256 transparent .ico & place it in My Doc folder.
Go to Personalization>Change desktop icon

Change the Recycle bin Icons (full/empty)

Then I had to Save theme for it to stay after a logoff/logon

Now Recycle bin Icons is gone.

You will need to find all the icons in the .dll in System32 that's something I do not know about.

For editing the start menu you will need a image editor like Photoshop, Gimp, Paint.
