You could use your own message dialog derived from the original one, but customized.
Something like:

function MyMessageDlg(const Msg: string; DlgType: TMsgDlgType; Buttons: TMsgDlgButtons; HelpCtx: Longint): Integer;
begin
  with CreateMessageDialog(Msg, DlgType, Buttons) do
  begin
    try
      HelpContext := HelpCtx;
      Color := $00A2EAB0;
      Result := ShowModal;
    finally
      free;
    end;
  end;
end;

Another way is to use the Windows MessageBox. It is possible to customize it through a "trick".
You post a user-message and in its hander you can change caption, buttoncaption, etc:

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Button1: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
    procedure WM_Hack (var message: TMessage); message WM_USER + 1025;
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  PostMessage (Handle, WM_USER + 1025, 0,0);
  MessageBox (Handle, 'Test', 'MyApplication', MB_OKCANCEL or MB_ICONINFORMATION);
end;

procedure TForm1.WM_Hack(var message: TMessage);
var
  h: HWND;
begin
  h := FindWindow (WC_DIALOG, 'MyApplication');
  if GetParent (h) = Handle then
  begin
    SetDlgItemText (h, ID_OK, '&Login');
    SetDlgItemText (h, ID_CANCEL, '&Cancel');
  end;
end;
