Can I change the background colour, etc?

Hi Mods and all

Okay I’m not to keen on the new site yet but that’s probably because I don’t have enough information yet. So what I want to know is can I change the background colour, the font and the font size as it is hurting my eyes? How do I get an picture. Is there a spell checker or an automated text checker? Is there an step by step guide to altering things and finding your way around. Can I alter the page to put things into an order which is better for me to follow and get rid of things I don’t want to see everytime I login but that I can chose to go to if I want to look at them? As it presently is I’m having real difficulites with the background colour and the organisation of the site.
