      Sounds like you're looking for what's described at

      :help termcap-cursor-shape

      where, at least in an xterm, you can tweak the cursor when
      entering/leaving insert mode. In other terminal emulators, YMMV.

      You would have to find what the escape-sequences are for the
      actual change, as I can't find them with a couple off-hand google
      searches. Perhaps the source or a wiser soul on the list has a
      source for the exact codes for common terminals. I don't know
      about changing blink-speed, but there should at least be codes
      for changing the size and color.
