How to change header from one skin to another

Hello all! I just recently upgraded my site to the Professional CS-Cart version. After looking through all of the skins, I found two that I like.

What I want to do is have the top header of the “electro” skin on the “Computer Store” skin. I would also like to replace the side category banners and so on to the “electro” skin types.

I’ve tried to copy/paste the code from the top.tpl from the “electro” skin into the “Computer Store” skin, but it never looks like it changed anything.

Then, once I get that done, I would like to change the color that the links change to when you hover over them (currently green on the electro skin) to a different color. Can anyone point me in the direction of where to find that color code?

Sorry if this is confusing anyone. Please help!
