Sounds like you need a shader, a tga with an alpha channel and the shader code to complete it. If you have Photoshop or something like it, look for tutorials on how to make alpha channels. I'm not sure exactly what you want or what your understanding level is so I can't give you any shader code until you describe it more.

yup, Shader using a .tga image with an alpha channel is what you need. So do some hunting on each of those. There are lots of shader tutorials arround, and for alpha channels you will need to find out how your paint program makes them.
