More GNOME 3 tweaks - expanding the panel, changing scrollbars

In most of my applications, the scrollbars are massive white things, and the handles are relatively big white dots. In others (like Firefox and Exaile), the scrollbars are really skinny and blue, and the handles are clusters of tiny dots. It looks more like clearlooks than Adwaita. Is the inconsistency because some of these apps only use GTK2? Which .css files do I need to edit to get consistency? I prefer the white bars over the blue ones, but not so wide.

Here it looks like Nautilus is using Adwaita while Exaile is stuck on clearlooks.
Similarly, can I edit some theme file to eliminate the monstrous resize handle that appears in the bottom right? It's a real eyesore, especially on top of the (buggily solid black) terminal windows.
Finally, I've seen some screenshots where the activities panel... thinger has rows of icons and additional things like, "Places," and "Recent documents." Is it possible to add things like that to the panel? Or was that something only in beta versions? I think I'd find gnome-shell a lot more useful if I had access to that sort of thing from the activities menu.

The Adwaita GTK2 theme seems incomplete (to me it looks exactly like the Clearlooks theme...), so the only possibility is setting a different GTK2 theme.
I think it's currently impossible to have GTK2 and GTK3 apps have the same appearance
Ah, I kind of solved that part! From what I'm seeing, it looks like some apps use GTK2 and some GTK3, so your theme needs to have, well, themes, for both. Adwaita just uses a very minor alteration of Clearlooks for it's GTK2. I've switched to Hope:

Which is very consistent and IMHO better than Adwaita, anyway. Still haven't figured out where that big'ol resize handle is coming from, though.
Oh, and, this is what the panel looked like at one time

It's themed, but you get the point. Way more useful. Really hope some clever extension creator figures out a way to bring that back.
