Custom theme questions

Basically I LOVE a lot of the custom work done on OrangePower. I was wondering how hard it would be to do the following as highlighted in the screenshot:
1. Custom widths
2. Custom header
3. Custom background image
4. Custom color schemes
5. Ads/widgets
6. Featured posts/slider
7. Cool social media stuff on the front page

How much of this could I do just from the ACP and how much would need to be written as a custom theme? I am willing to hire someone but anything easy I would like to do myself to save money ;) Thanks ahead of time for your input.

1-5 very easily from the ACP.

The rest is achieved using the XenPorta add-on, which is what that site is using.

so 1-5 can all be done with the default theme? I think I am gonna bite and buy the software if so.

Also, my partner and I have our own individual adsense accounts, is there an ad rotator that could show his code 50% of the time and my code the other 50% of the time?

awesome thanks for the help. Another feature I loved about Orangepower is different boards on the site had different custom headers... how did they do this?

Orange Power is a stunning XenForo site, one of the best I have seen. I hadn't noticed the different headers before, but you're right, and it's a neat idea.

Likely taking advantage of the option to specify a style per forum (when viewing a forum properties you can specify a unique style to use when viewing that forum). It is a bit more labor intensive having multiple styles but can have some dramatic affects.
