    Depending on how far you go.
    If you want to set up paypal for payments, have a site, there's no reason why you couldn't.

    Lots of theme designers here create and sell themes on mobihand and handango, don't see why you couldn't do the same with apps.

    so how would you be able to sell themes? would you have to create the whole thing from scratch or could you create one using modified/normal preexisting icons, backgrounds, etc. that are found online?

    Yes, but you would have to be careful about using existing pictures-some are copyrighted.

    Depends on what happens with trademark infringement. Some trademark owners can get picky if you're making a buck off they're name. Some may not care. Would be wise to play it safe and avoid it, or at the least contact the owner and ask.

    Sounds complicated, and confusing. Maybe over my head.

    Best thing would be to create your own original ideas and bounce them off friends or fellow stackers.

    May not be as difficult as you think. If you're considering themes there are som amazing theme makers here on the stacks that have taken they're time to provide advice and tips.

    As for applications, I'd start by making small simple programs that solve a problem you may have. You can be your own tester, or again offer to other stackers for help.
