Obviously the Clever thing to say is to get a Mac.

But, for the dock try this: http://rocketdock.com/

Search around for skins etc.

A quick google hit this up: http://osxdaily.com/2010/08/22.....windows-7/

I'm not sure that's possible, unless you created 3 different user accounts, then had the themes in the different users.

If you're talking about using different desktop environments, like KDE for the Windows look and gnome for the Mac look, I've never done that myself but I have seen posts on Linux forums that describe doing that. You want to look/search for switching desktop environments between KDE and gnome.

Zorin, based on Ubuntu, has what's called their "look changer"...

"The Look Changer lets you change your desktop to look and act like either Windows 7, XP, Vista, Ubuntu Unity, Mac OS X or GNOME 2 for ultimate ease of use."
