you need to set
buffer.caret_line_visible = false
in your theme's view.lua.
Due to the separate Lua states colors related to the language are set
in lexer.lua, colors for the scintilla widget in view.lua.
It's sufficient to copy for example Textadept's themes/light/view.lua
to ./textadept/themes/light/view.lua and change the value to false, if
that's the only change you would like to make.

caret_line_visible: Flag indicating whether or not the background of
the line containing the caret is a different color.

Escape. This is set at the GTK-C-level I think.
For the command line entry that is used for incremental search, you
could edit the keys that close the command entry widget.
