All of these things can be changed by putting some theme resource overrides in your Application.Resources, like:

<system:Boolean x:Key="{x:Static themes:AssetResourceKeys.DockingWindowContainerTitleBarHasGripperBooleanKey}">False</system:Boolean>

<SolidColorBrush x:Key="{x:Static themes:AssetResourceKeys.DockingWindowContainerTitleBarBackgroundActiveBrushKey}" Color="Red" />

<SolidColorBrush x:Key="{x:Static themes:AssetResourceKeys.TabbedMdiContainerTabControlBackgroundActiveFocusedBrushKey}" Color="Red" />

<SolidColorBrush x:Key="{x:Static themes:AssetResourceKeys.TabbedMdiContainerTabItemBackgroundActiveFocusedBrushKey}" Color="Red" />

<SolidColorBrush x:Key="{x:Static themes:AssetResourceKeys.TabbedMdiContainerTabControlBorderActiveFocusedBrushKey}" Color="Red" />

<SolidColorBrush x:Key="{x:Static themes:AssetResourceKeys.TabbedMdiContainerTabItemBorderActiveFocusedBrushKey}" Color="Red" />


Some other asset keys would be those starting with Window*.  You can use our Sample Browser's "Theme Browser" tool from the Tools menu to see all the asset resources so that you know which ones to customize.
