Alright, so I'm using a Nexus 7 with a stock ROM and i'm looking for some way to change that boring white color that they use for the battery icon and WiFi icon and pretty much every other icon. Does anyone know any basic themes that either:

1. Make the whole nexus more colorful and bright
||
2. Turn the basic white color to green

I've searched for a while and found a couple of them that were incompatible with my Nexus. After that, I found a couple of ROM's, although I'm wondering if you can just change the theme without changing ROM.

To change the status bar icons, you can look into XPosed Framework, and install the GravityBox module as well.

To change the keyboard color, you can try alternate keyboards.

To change the color of the elements throughout the home screen, try using a custom launcher that supports themes, icons, and colors.

OK. I understand most of that, I'm just wondering what exactly the custom launcher is. Is it like a new version of boot loader that launches the device differently or something?

You seem to be thinking too much about the word "launcher." It is simply a change of the default homescreen that you see when you unlock your phone.

In the Play Store, here are a few names that you can search for:
Nova Launcher
Go Launcher
Apex Launcher
MIUI Home
Lucid Launcher

You can also search for icon packs for your launcher, and it will change some of the default icons, depending on the pack.

You may be thinking of a custom theme. You have to use CM or AOKP as they have theme engines.

Or you can use HKThemeManager from Xposed. It doesn't work as nicely as CM theme engine, but it gets the job done.
