Unlocked phone, but I want to "unbrand" it. How?

So I've got an unlocked Motorola MOTORIZR Z3, which I want to use with AT&T.
It was originally a T-Mobile phone, and I think they're the only ones in the US who carry it.
It works with an AT&T SIM to make calls, and I've found instructions on setting up messaging/browser connections that look like I can follow them (knock wood) to get it working on AT&T's network.
But it still has all the T-Mobile, t-zones, etc branding & firmware all over the menus, etc.
But I'd like to get rid of all that branding. How?
I've spent hours trying to decipher posts on MotoModders, etc, but it's all alien language.
Can anyone point me at:
1) a guide to acquiring and installing generic or custom firmware/OS, that a reasonably clever layperson could follow?
2) someone who would do it for me? I'm in San Francisco, CA, USA.
