    I don't think I have seen you around before. Welcome to the forums.
    Can you link to the theme you downloaded in Play?

    The first is definitely a theme for a custom ROM, like Cyanogen. The second sounds like a theme for specific launchers. However, Nova isn't one of them.

    A custom ROM is a different version of your OS. Its still Android, but changed, both visually and functionally. It requires root access which voids your warranty.

    Do you have a custom recovery? You probably do, and you should make a backup of your stock ROM.

    OK. So make a Nandroid just in case, and you just need to find a custom ROM for your exact model number. One of the first places I would check is cyanogenmods website.

    Any other mods I could try, or maybe you could help me figure out the second one with the launcher it says?

    Since the app specifically says Smart launcher, I would begin with that. In the launchers settings, there should be a theme option. Try that.
