The location of grub configuration file in Cent OS is /boot/grub/grub.conf. You can edit it manually using any text editor.
You can specify the image to be shown at grub prompt but I am not sure if it supports animations. To specify the image you can use splashimage directive in grub configuration file.

I'm assuming you want to change the grub splash image. So, for this you can go through this link, grub splash image.
