If you want to change stuff at your login screen, I find it easiest to do like this:
log in with your username and password
Run the following commands
export DISPLAY=:0.0 sudo -u gdm gnome-terminal
Use the terminal there. For example gnome-appearance-properties.
If you are referring to the screen where you enter your user name and password to login to the system on startup (gdm) then there is no permanent way to change this (technically there is a way to change it, but only temporarily; it would require for you to change the theme)
follow this at your own risk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
alt+f2>gksu -u gdm gnome-appearance-properties>click on customise>change your windows border theme.
the next time you log in, you should be able to move the login panel, but it will reset every time you log in
