Using Win-Forms or MFC based UI instead of Theme UI (xml based)

I'm wondering if I want to replace this Theme manipulation (xml based) with Win-Forms or MFC based UI, do I have to modify/rewrite all that or I can simply use references of some library, just as in case of Managed Bootstrapper, where we are using BootstrapperCore.dll??

wixstdba is mainly integrated with XML based Themes which it is managing in different events: For Example in CWixStandardBootstrapperApplication::OnCacheAcquireProgress(), there are method calls like ThemeSetTextControl() or ThemeSetProgressControl().

Is there any good guide/Tutorial/Example for using Win-Forms or MFC based UI?

Afraid this is never something I have looked at. Probably better to start with the standard bootstrapper than this one.
