In the TeXShop Help menu, there is a Changes document which I always keep up to date. If you go to the section of the document for TeXShop 4.08, you'll find an elaborate explanation of how the Themes portion of Preferences works. No direct interaction with the default system is needed, and all hidden preferences for colors have been replaced by the colors that can be directly set in the Themes section.

As for the color of selected text, I believe that can be set in Apple's System Preferences; others on this list can probably give more precise information.
