Is there any way to change "Press CTRL + ALT + DELETE to log on" to something like: "Press CTRL + ALT + DELETE to make magic" or something like that? This is just for fun.

I will not claim that this works as I have not tried it, but here is a proposed solution to change that text. It involves some resource hacking and that means Caveat, this could adversely affect your computer.
Another thing you can do is to add some personal messages, similar to the motd on an ssh or irc server.
There are also options to change the background if you so desire.
Just make sure to keep track of changes you make so that they can be easily undone if you encounter any problems.
You might be able to change it with this tool: http://www.nirmaltv.com/2010/08/27/windows-7-logon-screen-tweaker/
If not, then I have the feeling that you won't be able to change it at all. It wouldn't surprise me if the Windows 7 Secure Logon screen is actually fairly secure.
