You can change user picture here:



However I am not sure will that affect the login screen. Try it and see if that works!

You can change the login screen to either alternatives from ubuntu or anof your own pictures.
Use the Appearance settings.

No problem!

As Pensioner said the login screen depends on the wallpaper/desktop background that you set.
