You will have to extract the .gz file in your theme folder and then you can edit the them by login to your WHM --> Branding in cPanel Section --> click on Edit live of the theme which you would like to modify. For modification you can refer to below mentioned URL:

[Reseller] Creating Unique Cpanel Themes within WHM - Surpass Web Hosting Forums
The Branding editor affects the appearance of the cPanel interface, not the WHM interface. It would not be useful for modifying the WHM X theme.

Modifying the WHM themes is a manual process at this time. Be sure to rename your WHM theme to something other than "X." If you just overwrite the existing WHM X theme, the next cPanel update will overwrite your customizations.
