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

       \Acrobatmenu{FirstPage} {\@battrib Erste }        
       \Acrobatmenu{PrevPage}  {\@battrib Vorherige }         
       \Acrobatmenu{NextPage}  {\@battrib N\"achste }         
       \Acrobatmenu{LastPage}  {\@battrib Letzte }         
       \Acrobatmenu{GoBack}    {\@battrib Zur\"uck }      
       \Acrobatmenu{FullScreen}{\@battrib Vollbild }  
       \Acrobatmenu{Close}     {\@battrib Schlie\ss en }        
       \Acrobatmenu{Quit}      {\@battrib Beenden }         

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:
