There are many tools to use to customise the splash screen, backgrounds, edit plymouth etc.

One of the most useful is "Burg" grub customiser.

To install Grub Customizer. Open a terminal and type:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grub-customizer

There is a tutorial listed here
