Is it possible to make the background of the legend be slighly transparent so that the lines behind it can be somewat visible?

I will not say that it is impossible at the moment. It is certainly not documented. You just might be able to change it using one of the hidden properties of the legend. Perhaps one of the ColorSpace properties. Nothing I have tried has worked yet.

This solution seems to work in Matlab 2020 +
h_leg.BoxFace.ColorType='truecoloralpha';
h_leg.BoxFace.ColorData=uint8(255*[1 1 1 0.75]');
where h_leg is your legend box handle.

You can refer to the link given below on how to set the different properties of legend
To change the background color of the legend you can change the 'Color' field to achieve the required transparency.
