There would be no harm in making your own plexiglass top, but if the plastic hood doesn't reduce evaporation, I doubt that the plexglass job would be much more effective at reducing evaporation.

If it is not a fluorescent light buy a fluorescent bulb or it for less heat. Plexiglas will help. If it is fluorescent a piece of glass will help. Do not use glass under a incandescent bulb. The heat may break the glass.
