The main issues were:
- adjusting the CMS' HTML admin templates to grappelli's template structure, mainly renaming css classes
- modifying the admin CSS files to fit the grappelli's color scheme
- furthermore I added some fields I considered useful to the included plugins
I'm no heavy user of the CMS' extended permission and moderation features, so there might be some issues left with that, feel free to report them here.

To have the text widget have the grappelli skin you need to install django-tinymce in the first step. Then you need to configure it to use the grappelli theme, therefore add the following to your settings.py:
This should make it basically working. Of course there are a lot of other options to configure for the editor, see for example grappelli's complete editor setup as an example to start with.
