a quick way to get a pretty terminal with fake transparency is to use aterm. If yuo explore its commandline options, youll find what youre looking for.. Ofcourse there are similar terminals. Eterm, mrxvt.. etc..

Xorg Composites is one way to get more eyecandy, but its pretty power consuming..

gnome-terminal and konsole both have options for background (fake) transparency.

Konsole: Settings > Schema > Transparent, Dark Background (or Light Background, depending on the background you have).
Gnome Terminal: Edit > Current Profile > Effects > Transparent Background

(The instructions may not be 100% accurate, depending on your version of the respective X terminal program. In case of doubt, just look around the settings for those two and you should find somewhere to toggle transparency).

thats mostly up to your window manager.. KDE has features accisble from the window menu to take away the boarder, but I dont know for Gnome.. Maybe there is something similar
