Logon image is random, desktop bg and theme can be set with WINNT.SIF

[Shell]
CustomDefaultThemeFile="%ResourceDir%\Themes\<Theme_Name>.theme"

If you want to open (cant apply) a .theme and/or .msstyle file with your "installer" you could try one of these commands

rundll32 Shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL desk.cpl desk,@Themes /Action:OpenTheme /File:"%WinDir%\resources\themes\windows classic.theme"
rundll32 Shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL desk.cpl desk,@Appearance /Action:OpenMSTheme /File:"%WinDir%\resources\themes\folder\file.msstyle"

There might be a command to simply apply the theme but I dont know it

You can unpack it with universal extractor or 7zip, but you will not be able to repack it easily...as for your default user pic here is the answer

By the looks of it I think he is using old XPize source
