Hi Nikkos:

There are no user-facing preferences to control the VenueClient text color. You can find the relevant bits for the Jabber panel in VenueClientUI.py/JabberClientPanel/__init__, here:

        self.normalTextAttr = wx.TextAttr(wx.BLACK)
        self.boldTextAttr = wx.TextAttr(wx.Colour(60,60,60))
        f = wx.NORMAL_FONT
        boldf = wx.Font(f.GetPointSize(),f.GetFamily(),f.GetStyle(),wx.FONTWEIGHT_BOLD)

I'm not aware of the icon/smudge problem you mentioned. You could check the AccessGrid bugzilla, and file a bug report if necessary, here:
