    Your options are wide open. You can download root apps like screen capture apps, load custom roms, and theme your phone.

    They appear in the marketplace. Good ones to start with would be drocap2 for screenshots, titanium backup, and sett cpu.

    Well i'm not really that familiar with the fascinate but I would suggest starting out with a new launcher like launcher pro, this doesn't require root but I think it adds a nice touch to the phone.

    That's what i've done with lp and a few widgets.

    Yes it is worth buying the pro version imo. I don't remember If you get more widgets but you get the ability to resize widgets.

    Install a file manager like Astro from the market. Open it. Navigate to the download folder. Press the .apk or .zip and select open app manager (in the case of a .zip you'll need to open file first, then press the .apk). Select install.

    I have Astro, just transferred the file via bluetooth. This theme is basically the same as LauncherPro but with less options. All you have do is change the dock in LauncherPro.

    You have to buy LauncherPro Icons and Docks from the market. It will download as LPI. Open app, choose docks>all. Once you see the dock(s) you like press on it and will save to gallery. Go to LP settings> appearance settings> custom> find dock>back button, boom you have a new dock.

    You can go to the launcherpro icons site and download docks and icons too. Here is the link http://launcherpro.droidicon.com/docks

    Adw launcher is also a good home replacement

    You can apply themes over different roms and customize looks and interface in roms such as ultimate droid 1.0 and cyanogenmod 6...not sure what roms work on fascinate
