    In my opinion the highest-quality collection of pay templates available is from RocketTheme.

    rockettheme dot com

    They use a 'club' model to provide access to the templates. The support forums are active and helpful.

    The developer has contributed a ton of work to the Joomla! project.

    Can anyone also tell me how editable are these templates?

    Can I access the CSS and change things like colors, background colors, layout, column widths etc. Just how much CSS can I change... if any?

    I'm not sure I like any of the templates too much—anything using them still looks like a template.

    I noticed somewhere that you can build your own templates... how hard is this to do?

    I can design and build a site myself. I'm only thinking of using Joomla because of the ease of adding functionality it affords. Incorporating a shopping cart easily for instance.

    I highly recommend Rockettheme, Joomlart and Yootheme for very professional design and coding, great customer support and value for money.

    rockettheme.com
    joomlart.com
    yootheme.com

    Also, they are all very editable. If you know CSS, html and a little PHP you can edit and customize them all to your hearts content, anything is possible.

    Good luck!

    A simple answer is that you have 100% access to the css and html source of templates. Generally speaking the licensing of pay templates supports selling sites based on a template derived design but not the selling of the template set itself as an original work. In the instance of rockettheme they are specifically oriented toward the site developer market. Their templates tend to have color options embedded.

    As for rolling your own, the best thing to do there is to just dig in and start crankin' on one of the default templates and see how comfortable you feel with it. I'm a fair-to-middling html/css monger and I don't think it's exactly easy but it ain't rocket surgery either.
