Thre is no secret "rich UI" library, that I am aware of.
I think you will find that most of the folks here have developed their own set of controls by extending the rather plain RIM controls.

As Winston Churchill said, I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat. Look at the examples from DevCon if you went, there are some good examples in there.
Learn to love the following methods:
field.layout(int w,int h)
field.setExtent(int w,int h)
Manager.suplayout(int w,int h)
Manager.layoutChild(Field f, int w,int h)
Manager.paintChild(Field f, int w,int h)
Or Don't use the Manager/Field/Graphics constructs at all.

You can check out Implement Advanced Buttons, Fields, and Managers. It demonstrates many of the advanced UI possibilities.
