Default Custom Skins for Control Box using Bitmaps

I need to know how to make a Control Box fit a bitmap region. I know that at the very top of the FAQ there is a link on how to do this, but I have downloaded that code and looked at it for 2 hours and I can't make heads or tails of it. If you guys could help me out with this it'd be much appreciated.
I'm trying to program the game Risk (the world domination game), and I was thinking that I would need to use custom region control boxes for the different territories as they won't overlap eachother yet you could still click on them.

Perhaps you should start with something a little easier then?
