You can remove margin properties from your tables using Stylesheets but be warned, Style Sheets and Tables don't mix too well in Netscape Navigator.
You can use any graphics program to make your rounded corners. You can't do it without background graphics. Tables were never meant to be used for formatting your page. They were meant to be used to present data in a spreadsheet like way that people are used to. If you can't purchase Adobe Photoshop, look at a cheaper alternative. Look at purchasing something like Paint Shop Pro which has a lot of features many of them developed for web design and costs about $500 dollars less than Photoshop. You can download a trial copy at www.jasc.com that lasts for 60 days, it says 30 but the program will work for up to 60.
