This is beaverusiv, I have downloaded the Docs and there is nothing I can see on customising the looks of the pages. Can you please point me to it?
What exactly do you want to achieve? "Customizing the look" leaves too much room for interpretations...
In general, there is a difference between CB core and 3rdParty approach:
- CB Profile Pro has a more visual approach, because you can "layout" your page(s) with a WYSIWYG editor. The biggest difference is: You can also alter Register and Edit Profile pages! You can mix CUSTOM HTML and CSS with your fields. Important: To alter registration and edit pages, you have to be aware of the fact, that you REPLACE the CB default template!
- CB Core features are more limited. The "layout" can not be altered as you might know it from CBprofilePro. CB Conditional plugin adds a multi-page registration and conditional field display on Register/Edit Profile. Visually you can style your display with CSS. Total repositioning of elements is not a strength of CB core. It has obvious limitations, but you can beautify it! The CB docs can help to understand the structure... but it does not teach you how to modify a registration page. CB core feature have more influence on CB Profile views. To be honest: Edit is the "worst" part. Registration is stylable through CSS and Conditional Plugin.

You want a Windows style and frame? Than CB ProfilePro is overkill, IMHO.
As far as i can see in your example, you just want "surounding eye-candy". This is pure CSS and configuration work.
Additional, you might want the register screen in a modal popup window?! Again, there is no need for CBPPro. You would have to open the register URL the same way as for CB core.
You can separate the register page from the rest of the page...
just append &tmpl=component to your CB register URL.
Modal window / lightbox tip:
- take a look at NoNumber.nl Modalizer (pro has many possibilities; lightboxes and URL support, but free should work fine for the beginning)
- you could write your own J! core Squeezebox solution in the component.php !? inspiration here and also [url=http://www.theartofjoomla.com<span>/</span>home<span>/</span>6-layouts/16-layout-overrides-popup-login-box.html]here[/url].
try to make a CBlogin module override, where you modify the register link URL
I guess you can hide the link in CBlogin module and replace register link with your OWN custom link in respective textarea.
