Dunno about keyboards ported from other phones.....but HTC_IME High Res Keyboard Skinner works for Froyo [Links below]. I had to use v26-FroyoHighRes but it works just fine. You just go to the website, create an account (real simple), and it allows you to create your OWN custom skin and buttons...including transparency and your own Background pics. All via the website wizard.
Below is how my keyboard looks as an example. It changes background depending if I portrait or landscape (1st one is Portrait, 2nd pic is landscape). The actual keyboard letters are NOT that large...that was just how the preview from the site worked out.
I applied some color filters to the pictures so that keyboard letters are still readable. It is a shame you cannot control Transparency % on the button shapes (Either full Transparent or Opaque). Still a wonderful tool.
Create your own!
Note: if people really want my skinned one above, I can post it. Just ask.
