To customize a theme you will need to edit the xml files for that theme.
The XML files involved are:
base.xml movietime-ui.xml mythnative-ui.xml theme.xml weather-ui.xml
controls-ui.xml music-ui.xml netflix-ui.xml
gallery-ui.xml mytharchive-ui.xml news-ui.xml ui.xml
game-ui.xml mythburn-ui.xml status-ui.xml video-ui.xml
If a theme is missing a file it uses the default file provided by mythtv.
This is the reason why most themes look the same, they use the defaults.
One place to start looking for more info is http://mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Theme_development_guide.
