I don't know very much, but it's all done in CSS nowadays. There are no
more programmable theming engines for GTK+ 3, i.e. themes for it can't
do as much, but CSS should be simpler.

You should probably take a look at the default themes [1] as an example
and possibly the outdated [2] to take a look at how themes can be
packaged. And of course [3] for a not fully cleaned-up reference on what
is available in GTK+ CSS.

And of course this discussion will probably more fruitful on GNOME
developer mailing lists [4].
