Creating themes for phpBB is notoriously painful. It's not that it's difficult, as such, it's just that it takes a terribly long time. If you go into your phpbb/templates/ directory and pick a template (you may only hae subSilver) you can see all of the template files that control how your phpBB looks. I count 51. The upshot is that these can be edited in Dreamweaver or a similar program pretty effectively. It's just going to take you awhile.

If you're serious about it, though, I recommend heading on over to phpBB's Styles & Development Discussion and reading the Sticky topics at the top. That should give you a reasonably good start.

If you merely want to change colours, you can do it through the Administration panel.
