    It's a little different designing a theme for wordpress than it is making a real site.

    Yes you can modify pre-existing themes.

    Wordpress is a great CMS with so many plugins and themes. Once you use a CMS to build a website there is really no reason to ever develop from scratch again, why reinvent the wheel.

    The downloaded themes can be modified, but I guess it's not a good habit.

    ^why not? I mean, I have seen lots of forums where they post edited wordpress themes and they are good... I think some people even make money out of it, if they are allowed to by theme owners.
