If I correctly understood what you need, I guess you just have to use the tokenat native expression (eg. tokenat(MultilineBox.Text, 1, newline))
Yes just use "transparent" (without quotes) as background color value
if you need to play with transparency value - use rgba(r,g,b,a), 'a' being the alpha value (0-255).
