    I managed to get the smoked theme installed, and wanted to install some of the other themes, but when I did, it would make my droid shut down before booting completely.

    Here is where I started, with a ROM called bugless beast.

    I've been reading all morning. I still am confused.

    You can apply themes to your rom and then you can install roms. All roms come with a theme. For that matter your phone, right out of the box, came with a theme. So are you trying to switch roms or apply a theme?

    Which rom are you using right now and do you care which new rom you want to try? ie: I'm using smoked glass 4.5 and have zero issues with it. I am overclocked but don't have to be and I have wifi tether working great.

    Your option is to apply a theme to it (I'm not familar with that rom) or just apply another rom that has the look and feel you want.

    You also get to decide if you like the current rom you are using right now or not. That should help you decide if you want to change how it looks or want to swap it out entirely for another. Applying a theme is a little more complicated than just swapping out for another rom. Using Metemorph and busybox you can change themes around. Here is one sample thread for a theme:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-hacks/24724-metamorph-theme-high-res-blue.html
    Looking at my link above for SG4.5 you can scroll partway down and see the look and feel of that rom.
    I'll be here for a while so no need for the phone, just write back and we can work through it. That way this sits here for the next person to follow along with too.

    Define "it". Are you looking at a message thread that explains how to install the theme or where to get it from? Or do you mean you don't know where to get a new rom from?

    Do you plan on keeping your current rom or are you impartial to it?

    That is even easier still. Go to the market and search for Beautiful Widget and download the app. There are all sorts of skins you can apply for the weather/clock widget.

    don't feel dumb. This is just new to you. Stick with it and in a while you'll have it down pat.

    I'll add that for this you don't need to root either.

    There is a there covering modifications you can make to your phone without rooting it. New icons, new backgrounds, apps that aren't available in the market place, weather/clock widgets, extra homescreens, etc.
    edit: added link: Unrooted section

    Rooting lets you learn more about your phone, lets you use wifi tethering, and lets you overclock your CPU. If you don't need these things then you can mess with the stock applications and decide to root later if you want.
