You can not change the color of the UI (toolbars, status bar and so on) Codeblocks uses the system default theme.
You can change the colors of the editor:

Can these set of colors be added to C::B by default rather than later customization ?

I don't know what you mean. Can you describe more?
You can change the coloring of the code in Settings->Editor->Syntax highlighting->Colour theme

I don't know if there is a default dark theme. I imported mine from the wiki
Many colors can also be changed in Settings->Environment->Colours.
I have to admit that this is all a mess....

[Edit:] There is a installation instruction on the bottom: http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/Syntax_highlighting_custom_colour_themes#Installation

I mean why there is an installation separate from C::B initial installation.  I want that after just installing C::B I can go to Settings->Editor->Syntax highlighting->Colour theme and select from so many offered themes from there.
