Here is how to configure an embedded widget without properties dialog:

my_layer.setCustomProperty("embeddedWidgets/count", 1)
my_layer.setCustomProperty("embeddedWidgets/0/id", "transparency")

Finally one needs to call refreshLayerLegend(), e.g.:

view = iface.layerTreeView()

The methods from QgsLegendInterface only affect the actions in context
menu for the layer tree, they are not related to embedded widgets
