2-2017 process to add themes fedora 25 3.22?

Hello, new linux user here with the fedora 25 gnome 3.22 up and running and updated (on a dual boot with win 7, Acer desktop). ...Then added: both rpm fusions, gnome tweak tool, gnome shell extensions, VLC, java web, gimp image, etc., (the "25 things to do" from tecmint items. I did most of the suggested things successfully and others didn't sound vital so I left those). I downloaded/extracted theme file(s) from Deviantart (Mictlan) AND "3.23.90 gnome-shell-extensions-3.23.90.zip [AND] gnome-shell-extensions-3.23.90.tar.xz (Florian Müllner 3 days)" ...from gnome.org, but cannot seem to get gnome tweak tool to access them, recognize them, etc. These "themes" do not show up. I use the tweak tool under "Appearance", then "Shell Theme" and click on "None" to add one (or some) and it goes to the files. Then, I can "open" the downloaded/extracted files but nothing changes and they don't appear in the Tweak Tool list. I created a .theme file under Home/user.. according to instructions I read somewhere. Maybe you know the step(s) or codes I missed to do this. Thanks for the help.
