1.    you can alter this with CellMargins.  You can set this to 0, a 
number or have control over left, right, top & bottom spacing if you want.

2.    Cell backgrounds are changed using the Background option.  To 
change the background between cells, you'll need to change this option 
in the Notebook style.

I'd suggest starting with (eg.) NaturalColor.nb, and modifying styles 
based on these.  Remeber that you should save the notebook in the proper
