HTTP Proxys

These days I have been working with Proxys, Load Balancers, HTTP and all kind of related stuff. I was wondering how can I setup a anonymous proxy (a humble one, of course) so I could play a little bit with it.
I found some cool comparison that shows different types of proxys and which HTTP headers they set in each request:

Transparent Proxy

REMOTE_ADDR: Proxy IP address
HTTP_VIA: Proxy IP address/hostname and details – e.g. 1.1 proxy1.mydomain.net:3128 (squid/2.7.STABLE9)
HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR: Your real IP address

Anonymous Proxy

REMOTE_ADDR: Proxy IP address
HTTP_VIA: Proxy IP address/hostname and details – e.g. 1.1 proxy1.mydomain.net:3128 (squid/2.7.STABLE9)
HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR: blank

Elite Proxy

REMOTE_ADDR: Proxy IP address
HTTP_VIA: blank
HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR: blank
