the mapOverlay plugin is a toolbox only, you need to create your own plugin 
which will use the tools provided by the mapOverlay plugin so you can modify 
the parts you want.

there are several example of plugins on the website wiki 
http://www.cartoweb.org/cwiki/HowTo which should be simple enough,
and you can search 
the mailing-list archive for several example of mapOverlay usage.
be sure to have this document under the eyes at all times
