Just put this line right after the first <?php tag in the wp-config.php. This will also remove the WordPress' Theme/Plugin editors as well.

define('DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT', true);

How to edit a logo or colours?

The theme should have an option to do that. Please, check the customizer or within the admin area for a menu that matches the theme's name. Our plugin doesn't know how each theme works so it's better to direct those kind of questions to the theme designer.

The child theme is created but doesn't have some styles or doesn't show the admin panel of the parent theme

OK. Please contact the theme author if his/her theme is child theme friendly. Also which files does the theme need in order to work well.

My Site is Broken

!@$@!$. Ok. Calm down. When you created the theme did you click on copy functions.php from advanced options? Ok. You'll need to use FTP client and go to in the wordpress folder and then wp-content/themes/AAAAA-child-01/ and delete functions.php AAAAA is of course the directory of your parent theme.
