I've downloaded this -->

Now I want to change the window theme and GTK+

Gnome Tweak Tool says that I only have those: Adwaita(default),AgingGorilla, Atlanta, Bright, Crux, Esco, Metalbox, Simple

in GTK+ I have Adwaita(default), highcontrast, highcontrastinverse, lowcontrast

I want to add new themes on those options... where can i download themes relative to this ? I read some articles that I need a package called Unico. I'm a little confused at this :/

You have to create the a directory called .themes in your home directory (it is hidden because it starts with a dot):

$ mkdir .themes

and then unzip there the theme you have downloaded. Finally open gnome-tweak-tool and change gtk and metacity themes.
