Update: with user-image implemented
2 issues:
1. Don't know how to align user image to the left side of the second column (so for now its just 'aligned' to the current width of my menu)
2. Having issue with the user-image mask (to make the user image round)

Yes; sounds like an issue with the creators update, try sfc /scannow (with admin level command prompt) and see if it fixes the problem, otherwise you might need to do a fresh install (luckily windows 10 makes this painless, unluckily, since its so unstable you may need it alot)

I dont, this is by design IMO, its not hard to add 1% opacity to a button. and this way you can still have easy access to the win X menu by right clicking the corner, and the CSM context by clicking on the button itself
but of-course a checkbox in the settings would be acceptable :P

Classic shell 4.3 does have taskbar skinning features, that you should be able to use to replicate the same look? maybe you can use classic shell for skinning the taskbar. and windowblinds for everything outside the taskbar/startmenu? Id imagine this is low on IVO's priority list because of that.
