Rotation of Windows Forms controls is not possible because the underlying
Win32 API's that drive them know nothing about the graphics required to do
it.

You can rotate the contents of some controls if you control all the drawing
yourself.

As for transparency, see the article in Windows Forms Tips and Tricks.
