(setq-default cursor-type 'box)
(setq-default cursor-in-non-selected-windows t)
(set-face-background 'cursor "black")
(blink-cursor-mode 0)

Does this do what you desire?

This uses standard commands and variables I found online.  I guess it’s a lot easier to find when you know what you’re looking for.
It’s admittedly funny how the shape is set by variables, the color via a face, and the blinking via a mode.
