To change the depth of the navigation:

  1. Open the Master page you are using (via SharePoint Designer or Visual Studio. I used SharePoint Designer).
  2. View the Source code and find the SharePoint:AspMenu tag for the QuickLaunchMenu
  3. Change the 'StaticDisplayLevels' element to '3'
  4. Save the changes to your master and republish.

To edit the order of the items in the navigation, use the 'Site Actions > Site Settings > Modify Navigation' and use the 'Navigation Editing and Sorting section'

Regarding Style the menu - Create a theme to override the 'default' styles (or find the default styles and modify them. But I think a theme is better). I followed the instructions for creating a theme (in the comments of the page) found at:

The styles used in that menu are described here:
