So it's safe to use random Themes/icons.. as long that i place them into (User/Home/.icons or .themes folder..?

When you open the themes, there is an option at the top to download more themes!  Just find one you like and download it.  That is what I did!

Usually yes, but you should setup Timeshift just in case.  If you get crazy with Themes it can cause problems.

Lightweight desktops such as Xfce and MATE are 'basic' by their nature.

Cinnamon and KDE are the more graphically intensive versions of Mint.

I use XFCE on my systems, because it's lightweight on resources.. :P

That's the idea. Xfce is designed for people that want a desktop that's light on resources. :)

Themes and Icons are typically safe;  icons are usually bitmaps of some sort, themes are typically configuration specifications. 

(I'm going by memory because I'm not running XFCE at the moment in fact I'm not even on a Linux system, but a BSD one)

If you went into XFCE configuration tools, started with window manager settings  You should find ways to set which decorations are on a window

(close, maximize, etc), what order they should appear in, what the title bar looks like.

Then pop over to panel settings.

 

Those are all the configuration things in a "theme"
