    Login in wordpress - Then you can navigate to left menu. Dashboard > Appearance > Themes > Add New > Upload Theme > Browse > Choose file > Install now > Activate

    You can also upload manually using ftp. Folder structure - wp-content > themes
    upload theme files over here and activate from wordpress > dashboard > appearance > theme > activate

    Yes Akismet do have a free version for personal, non-commercial sites and blogs. But for commercial website you need to pay for it.

    What we use in monitoring our website is disqus, social media plugins and tweetly. It is way more convenient because after writing a content on our blog, it will automatically be posted in our social networking sites.
