I looked into specifying it in the .Xresources file, and while that
may be possible, you would have to know the exact name of the
setting you are trying to set.
That's precisely why I mentioned Custom.
At 27.12.3 in the XEmacs User Manual, there is a list of
Xresources, and nothing there looks like a background pixmap.
Perhaps there is someplace else to look for more Xresources that XEmacs
Those resources are pretty much restricted to the ones implemented by
XEmacs itself. XEmacs can use any resources that are available in the
toolkits it uses, of course.

XEmacs participates in the editres protocol. AFAIK it's not an
option, it's always built-in. So just fire up the editres client and
start clicking away, and explore as you like. (We don' need no
steekin' gobject introspection protocol! ;-)
So background pixmaps can be used in the main display area and in
the modeline, but those two places are the only ones I can get to
Are they generated differently than other parts of the XEmacs screen?
Yes. The menubar, the tabs, the progress gauge, the toolbar, and the
scrollbar are self-contained widgets implemented in lwlib/, in several
cases as derivatives of widgets provided by some 3rd-party widget set
The text area, the modeline, the echo area/minibuffer, and the fringes
are "panes" (non-widget subobjects, not even X windows IIRC) of the
all-mighty EmacsFrame "widget" implemented pretty much from scratch in
