Sure you can achieve those looks using WinForms (though WPF would be much easier), you'll have to use the form's and each controls paint events to draw everything out yourself with the theme(s) you want. That'll involve you knowing a fair amount of GDI+ of which there's a lot of articles and tutorials via Google you can find.

If you haven't already started on this project then you would absolutely be better off doing in WPF. It would mean learning some new things but it will be worth it, for this project and others in future.
