Check the man page, one thing to do is to run it with the -O option to make it transparent. Also, make sure you do not run it with -s (the scrollbar). Finally, -x for no borders. Try it out.
edit: well, I've gone and played with the thing until I got the results Basically, you should find the file which has the options for eterm (it should be ~/.Eterm/themes/eterm/user.cfg). There you can change all of the options which I mentioned. Towards the bottom of the file, below the line 'toggles:', set it like this:
Then, run it with the -O (transparent), -f black (makes the font black) and --font-fx none (this cancels all the font effects). These last three options you can add to your icon (if you use an icon to launch eterm), if you use enlightenment you can add them to your ~.menu file inside ~/.enlightenment.
I'm playing around with the effects, I'd like a colored dropshadow or something similar, but I can't figure out how to define the colors, if anyone can help? Writing --font-fx shadow blue for instance does not work, it gives me the default effect, a black dropshadow.Stumbling around the 'net:
