Can someone create a start menu skin similar to the one shown in the attachment (except with Windows 7 style arrows)?

Also, can you make it so that there is an option for transparency? Thanks in advance.

Do you mean just to have square corners on menu, selectors, and user image frame? All you need to do is edit, and replace the bitmaps of an already made skin.
Example Windows Aero.skin7

Use free Pixelformer image editor. It should be easy. Use color picker, and pencil tool,
to copy and paste a color, to fill in the corner areas.

If you can't figure it out, I'll convert one for you later tonight.

Here. :)
Only made square corners. I did not flatten out the selector buttons.
I never tested on other systems, besides Win 10.
The skinned scroll bar is not going to work with Creators Update (Win 10).

I didn't put in a switchable opaque/transparency option,
because just having option text,:

OPTION NOT_TRANS="Opaque",0

[NOT_TRANS]
Main_opacity=region
Main2_opacity=region

will make menu a lot darker, even black. It would take a total redesign of bitmaps, and color masks to look brighter.
Depending on which operating system, you have CSM set up on,
it might show a setting "Glass opacity". Set it to 100 for a bright opaque look,
or 25 for more transparency.

Thanks! This is perfect!
