    Is there some variable I can put in the URL so I can test a theme that's not the active theme? Our site is very busy and I don't want people to see my trial and error designing.

    Look for 'preview theme'

    To add to moshu's suggestion, the theme switcher plugin from Ryan has no real documentation, so you can look at the plugin code for the function if you want users to be able to choose a theme.
    Otherwise, activate the plugin, and then you can navigate to the theme of your choice via the browser by http://www.yoursite.com/?wptheme=themename
