I'm looking  for documentation or help on how to make

Those windows are not transparent. They only use the background
of the root-window as their own background.

So if somenone can give me a trick or a documentation reference
i'd be really happy

Hm, xwd does simthing similar. Maybe XGetImage and XPutImage 
can help you. Otherwise check the sources of Xchat an aterm.
I'm quite sure there are also equivalent functions for 
XGetImage and XPutImage in gdk.
