This would render the licence non-free, since you restrict modification
(the background can't be changed). I am not sure about the name thing,
and leave that to debian-legal.

I'd suggest you to keep the licence free, and especially use a proven
one, like the MIT or GPL licences. You can then add a note, that does
not belong to the licence, stating what you intend. Most people will
stick to that - the world is not as bad as it seems :-)
