Vbulletin 5 themes

Completely new to vBulletin and have a few questions. Website is up and functioning fine after install. My question is, is it possible to use previous thems from 3.8 or 4.x using the newer software.

I really like how this page is setup, does anyone have a template on how to do that? I don't mind to pay, I currently hate the look of the home screen and navigation. If anyone with experience is selling or wants to help I am willing to pay. Overall goal is for my forum/site to look similar to this one with the obvious changes.

If I need more info please let me know. The site I am building is on a linux cpanel server. Currently have the newest version of vBulletin up and running fine. No issues with that. Just unhappy with the styling and even after going over the admin panel and editing things, I cannot get the look I want. The forum is simply an automotive community where several different generations of vehicles will be posting in separate sections.

vBulletin 3 and vBulletin 4 themes are 100% incompatible with vBulletin 5. Converting a vBulletin 3 theme to vBulletin 4 and vice versa is relatively easy, but to convert it to vBulletin 5 and making it look even remotely close the same is a lot more work.

If you really want to look/feel/colors of your vBulletin 3/4 theme, your best bet is to find someone.

These seem to be more of what I am looking for. Anyone have any experience with this company/seller? https://www.sultantheme.com/product/...-pack/#reviews

Finally found some templates/themes and purchased theme. However, I am having a hard time getting them all into my server. I will be using this theme https://www.sultantheme.com/vb5conne...h?photoid=1127

However, I can not figure out how to do the following steps;
3. Please upload the product xml from Admincp> Product & Hooks> Manage Product> Import Product> product_stsocialsforceriumdstyle.xml
4. Please upload the vbulletin-style xml from Admincp> Styles & Templates -> Download/Upload Styles > vbulletin-styles-xxx.xml
