Wanna try other themes can I just install over the themed rom or do I have to start from a fresh install?Thanks
If the theme is properly ported for the ROM you are using, there "shouldn't" be any performance issues. However, there may be certain things themed in one theme and not another. So you may have, for example, a themed Facebook app in the first theme. In your next theme you try, Facebook may not be included in the theme, so it will stay themed with the first one you chose, while everything else will be themed with the new version.
I think that makes sense.
But like Cerea killer said..it's best to start fresh with the stock theme of the ROM. One of the many reasons it's important to do a back-up of a stock-themed ROM once you have everything else set up. You can always restore to a stock theme/ROM and then theme over it instead of having to completely re-install from scratch.

But I respond to anything....call me Tom, Richard or Harry.
I'm not recommending that other people avoid the wipe, just making the observation that this is what I've done successfully.

If themes are not signed right (and hint --- they usually are not!!) -- usually there is a problem installing a theme over a theme. This might not be apparent initially but oftentimes FCs appear later when the conflict is encountered. Not to beat a dead horse, but you are probably best reinstalling the rom with a wipe and starting from scratch.
