For number 1 :
I don't know if this is still possible since I only tried a few years ago.
For this you needed to run the system in admin/root mode. It's like having a permanent sudo (superuser) active.
It's of course not recommended for obvious security reasons. (and also to prevent you to "brick" your installation. ;)

For 3:
Go in the menu, settings and Appearance. Most options are there.
To further customize, you can also check out the Windows Manager setting module.

Cheers!

To change the window color is not hard but neither is it simple.  xfce, to my knowledge, does not have a GUI to do this task.

Instead it requires some simple changes to the theme config file.

First understand that the color info for any theme is in the theme's config file and the color code is a hexadecimal number.  The format for these values is '#XXXXXX' where '#000000' is black and '#FFFFFF' is white.  All other colors/shades are somewhere in between.

To get the hexdecimal value for the color/shade you want to do a Google search for 'color palette generator'.  There are apps you can install like 'gpick' or online apps that work well.  I use 'terminal sexy', an online app.  By adjusting the slide bars to the color I like I can read it's value.

Theme config files are stored at /usr/share/themes/.  Go there, copy the 'Clearlooks' folder and save it to home, Desktop, or where ever you want.

Rename it to something like 'MyTheme'.  Open the folder and then the 'gtk-2.0' folder.  You should have one file called 'gtkrc'.  Open it with text editor.  On line 4 you will see 'gtk-color-scheme=' followed by all the values for the colors used in the 'Clearlooks' theme.  You can edit those values to what ever you like.  To change the window color, tweak these:
   base_color
   nselected_bg_color
   nbg_color

If you are going dark be sure to change these to white (#FFFFFF) or some light color:
   nfg_color
   ntext_color
   nselected_fg_color
else you might not see text!!!
After the changes, save the file.

Next, open the file manager, go to top left and click on file.  Select 'Open as Administrator' and enter password.  In the new window go to your 'MyTheme' folder, left click and copy.  Now navigate to /usr/share/themes/ and paste in your 'MyTheme' folder. Close all windows.

Open settings and then 'Appearance'. Your new theme should be listed.  Select and your all set.

Hope this helps,
