if i understand correctly you want to change your language switcher's look within the homepage correct?

WPML itself provides the ability to add the language switcher in the front end but all the styling is based and controlled by your theme.

How are you currently adding the language switcher in the front end ? Have you added it through WPML->Languages as a menu switcher or a widget?

Additionally regarding the white background you can simply remove this by using some custom CSS.

NOTE : you can add the following in your theme's custom CSS area.

#lang_sel ul ul {
    left: 50%;
    margin-left: -75px !important;
    margin-top: 7px !important;
    border: none;
    background: none;
    height: auto;
    padding: 6px 5px 7px !important;
    text-align: center;
    border-radius: 3px;

\"background: none" is what controls that.

Unfortunately the look of your switcher as i mentioned is controlled by your theme's CSS and we are quite limited on custom work that we can provide on the forum but please let me know if that resolves the issue with the white background
