FRED: cursor & Translucent overlay

I would like to hack FRED in the following 2 ways and need a jump start:

1.  I would like to have a FRED mode where a pointer cursor replaces the
I-beam cursor - sort of like having a read-only FRED.  Is there an obvious
place where FRED handles changing the cursor from the pointer to the I-beam
(when over the content region)?

2.  When in this mode, I would like to overlay a translucent layer on the
content region of FRED.

Any ideas out there?
