    I'm used to PSP but have photoshop file that I need to change/update.

    I'm adding a box to an existing background but want the newly created box to be transparent, only the border showing ... How do I get this effect?

    make the transparent area, then use the Blending Options to "Stroke" the layer with whatever colour you want with a pixel border if the width you wish
