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.
