Both are color and the strings of the bottom buttons are hardcoded into
pdfscreen.sty. You can override the settings by putting the following

\AtEndOfPackage{%
\def\@battrib{\color{<yourcolor>}$\bullet$\sffamily\footnotesize\itshape}
\def\@@buttons{\ifx\@shorttitle\@empty\relax\else%
}

and replace <yourcolor> with the color of your choice.

The texpower package by Stephan Lehmke contains macros to activate each
of the page transition effects directly. You can donwload it from the
following location:
