How can I make the icons more crisp looking?anti-atlasing?terminal with no frame?

Hello everyone! i was chekcing out some peoples screen shots and i was impressed with
#1. anti-alaising of the fonts, i was wondering how u turn that on so the fonts can look more like MAC OS rendering.
#2. How can i make the icons more crisp and clean looking?
#3. I saw this terminal that looked pretty cool, i was wondering how i can modify the window behavior to also have no frames so you just see a title bar then the screen with no surround frame. I am going to post a series of screen shots so you know what i'm talking about, and also i'll show you what my desktop looks like.

#1 and #2. Here is what my fonts look like and icons on my desktop:

here is what i would like my icons and fonts to look like:

#3. Here is the terminal I wanted to mimic:
Note: i just like the window behavior, no frame i think?

Here is my terminal:

Note: I have 256 megs DDR GeForce 6800 GT, 1280x1024, refresh rate 60hz

Just guessing...
Linux distros come with different size Icons---and also allow you to expand or contract the icon size.
Search on "icon" and you will find various folders with different sizes--eg 32x32 48x48, etc. Try using large icons and see if that addresses your issue
