1) in themes VS2015, VS2012 and Office2013  should be used CXTPRibbonBackstageView instead old CXTPRibbonSystemPopupBar. See our example  Samples\ActiveX\CommandBars\VB\RibbonSample\frmMain.frm  in method CreateBackstageView()
Sub CreateBackstageView()
    Dim RibbonBar As RibbonBar
    Set RibbonBar = CommandBars.ActiveMenuBar
    Dim BackstageView As RibbonBackstageView
    Set BackstageView = CommandBars.CreateCommandBar("CXTPRibbonBackstageView")
    Select Case CommandBars.VisualTheme
        Case xtpThemeOffice2013
            BackstageView.SetTheme xtpThemeOffice2013
        Case xtpThemeVisualStudio2015
            BackstageView.SetTheme xtpThemeVisualStudio2015
        Case Else
            BackstageView.SetTheme xtpThemeRibbon
    End Select
    Set RibbonBar.AddSystemButton.CommandBar = BackstageView
    BackstageView.AddCommand ID_FILE_SAVE, "Save"
    BackstageView.AddCommand ID_FILE_SAVE_AS, "Save As"
    BackstageView.AddCommand ID_FILE_OPEN, "Open"
    BackstageView.AddCommand ID_FILE_CLOSE, "Close"

2) There are no ways to change colors in status bar from VB or C#. But you can change VisualStudio2015Dark.ini file in VisualStudio2015.dll  in section [CommandBars.StatusBar].
