Xfce uses GTK2 themes for customization. Check out and for a huge collection of GTK2 themes. The two start menus in your screenshots differ by more than colors, these are different applets. The new menu applet (second screenshot) is called Whisker Menu, you can find it in the applet list of your Xfce panel.
