    Is your domain still pointed to your WordPress.com website? If so, you wont be able to visit the WordPress login until you update your DNS to point to your hosting account.

    it's all working fine now.

    how do I install different themes that aren't wordpress themes?

    You don't. You need to use a WordPress theme, built for WordPress. There's literally thousands available for free.

    I can't find thousands, not even hundreds. Where should I be looking?
