There is no reason to develop new plugin or support the .png format. Existing NSIS plugin advsplash can do this for you:

PHP Code:
Function .onInit
Splash Bitmap
/oname=$PLUGINSDIR\splash.bmp "${SPLASH_BITMAP}"
advsplash::show 1000 1500 1500 0xFF00FF $PLUGINSDIR\splash
$; $0 has '1' if the user closed the splash screen early'0' if everything closed normally, and '-1' if some error occurred.
Delete $PLUGINSDIR\splash.bmp
The key is to set color which will be transparent: in this case it is 0xFF00FF.

…unless you want to use more than 1 alpha channel, which is likely when using shapes other than rectangles
