Terminal transparency and background wallpaper have nothing to do with dwm. I can't speak for anyone else but I use feh to set my wallpaper. Transparency doesn't exist in all terminals, you'll have to check the documentation for your favorite one. To set information in the bar, you can use xsetroot, as shown here:

Subject: [dwm] Making it a million and one

Hello Fellow DWM Users,

This question is probably asked a million times...but I would like to
find a definitive manual on DWM. I want to know it better and do things
like put the time on the top panel and put wallpaper in the background
and make my terminal transparent. Basically, muck around with the
settings of DWM. Where would I find instructions on that? Is there a
definitive manual anywhere on-line?

Learning about the 'float' feature more would also be nice.

Thanks and sorry for the rudimentary questions/requests.
