    We cannot add themes at wordpress.COM. We are limited to the 170+ (and growing) themes found in the dashboard under appearance > themes. Themes found on the internet are for self-hosted wordpress blogs using the software from wordpress.ORG.

    Themes at wordpress.COM have to be modified to work within the restrictions here and to support the unique features.

    The differences between wordpress.com and wordpress.org (self-hosted) sites.

  3. Can not we at least remove one theme and another theme add evolve

    We cannot add themes at wordpress.COM. We are limited to the 170+ (and growing) themes found in the dashboard under appearance > themes.

    If you want to use that theme you will have to self-host a blog. You will have to register a domain name (if you do not have one) hire a third-party web hosting service such as bluehost, dreamhost, etc., install and configure the wordpress.ORG software and transfer all your content to that self-hosted blog. Then you can install any theme you want. Figure an average monthly cost (all things included) of about $10 to $25.

    You will be responsible for all installations, all upgrades, all backups and all troubleshooting. If something goes wrong with your site, such as installing a theme or plugin that kills it, you have to figure it out and fix it. WordPress has made it much easier to self-host sites, but there is still a lot more work involved.
