I've added the whole theme folder to /usr/share/themes/
In the folder of the downloaded theme there should be a folder called gtk-2.0
(there might be others too, such as gnome-shell
Open Gnome Tweak Tool, Interface. The name of your theme should be automatically added in the list.
If it doesn't work, try to move your theme's folder to ~/.themes
But then it's only available for you, not the other users of your computer.
I hope this helped.

I've already found some very good tweaks here, thank you very much for that.
I've also found some by myself.
Yesterday I found a site with a lot of good tweaks: WebUpd8
It gets updated daily so new extensions are still coming.
My personal favorites:
: It displays the weather next to the clock.
Media Player Extension, removing Accessibility icon
: Add/remove this to/from the top bar.
: An email notifier. A good replacement for "FireTray".
There are others too, such as: displaying workspaces in top bar, a very easy theme selector (not very useful because the default theme is the best theme I've ever seen on any OS), a system monitor in top bar...
Someone might have already posted this once, but there are some useful tweaks here too: Gnome Shell Extensions
Alternative Status Menu for example is a very useful one.
You can install them in terminal with this command:
su -c 'yum install gnome-shell-extensions-<name-of-extension>'
For the people who don't like Gnome Shell that much, then this
is something for you.
It's a pack that provides a Gnome 2 like user experience in Gnome Shell by moving the clock to the right, adding shortcuts for apps on the top bar, replaces "Activities" with the Applications menu, you can choose a predefined amount of workspaces.
They can be installed separate according to the author.

How to change the delete key.
For some reason they have changed the delete key to Control + Delete (to prevent deleting things by accident I guess [did they ever heard of a folder called trash?])
So here's how to change it:
Open your terminal and type this in normal (!!) mode (don't use root).
$ dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/interface/can-change-accels true
Then open "Files", click on a random folder, then click on edit and hover your mouse over "Delete", then press your delete key twice slowly (first to tell it that you'll change its key ["Delete + Del" next to "Move to Trash" disappears], then to tell it it has to be the delete key [It'll show "Delete"])
Then go back to your terminal and type this:
$ dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/interface/can-change-accels false
The reason why you shouldn't use root is because you'll change that key in root folders only and it wouldn't affect normal usage of Nautilus. You can change it there too if you want, but if you would delete something by accident, the consequences can be very bad.
Credits go to a forgotten source. (I've read it somewhere but I don't know anymore where it exactly was)
