I am messing with Unity and trying to tweak everything in order to have a more customized desktop.

Using Gnome Shell, anyone can see that the menus are different in the top panel. They have transparency and look like a bubble sort of. You know what I am talking about, right?

Is there a way I could use the same menus for Unity or is that not possible?

I'm sorry but it is not possible. Unity uses GTK to draw the dropdown menus, and GNOME Shell uses CSS.
