It's simple, do this thing
for each pixel of your image :
get it's color number, background's color number, then calculate such
(transparency - real 0.0 - opaque to 1.0 - full transparent)
transr:=pal[colimage].r*transparency+pal[colbackgr].r*(1-transparency)
same for transg and transb
then calculate coltodraw:=closest_rgb(transr,transg,transb)
you must do closest_rgb yourself (see color with minimal (r-rneeded)^2+(g-gneeded)^2+(b-bneeded)^2 - thats best matching color)
