Depends on the terminal you use.  Xfce Terminal for instance can be run 
with the --hide-borders option.  If your terminal doesn't have an option 
like this you can use devilspie(1).  Combine this with alltray(2) and 
you'll have a terminal on your desktop.  I use alltray to put Xfce 
Terminal on my Xfce desktop like so:

/usr/bin/alltray -x --sticky --geometry 500x955-0+90 --show --skip-
taskbar --no-alltray "xfce4-terminal --working-directory=$HOME --hide-
menubar --hide-borders --hide-toolbars"
