This is the best book on Stata graphics available.  You can learn a lot as well as find nice solutions for your problems.

Greetings

   I hope that people would forgive the shameless plug, but I would also 
suggest "A Visual Guide to Stata Graphics, 2nd Ed" 
(http://www.stata.com/bookstore/vgsg.html) see for learning about and 
solving these kinds of graph problems. For example, the issue of 
controlling legends in combination with -by()- is covered in sections 
9.8 and 9.9.

Best regards,

Michael N. Mitchell
