Well, my book has a section (pages 1054-1074) on this topic. (disclaimer: I did not write that section.) You might want to read it. If you mean to write a look-and-feel from scratch, be forewarned that it's not a casual undertaking.

There are also some open-source look-and-feel implementations out there you could use as templates, or at least take a look at.

I'm not sure what to make of "or any other" clause. There are lots of technologies that support pluggable look-and-feels. No doubt some of them would be much less work than Java Swing, but this would be the wrong forum for anything other than Swing.
