1. go to Settings-About Phone and there's your answer!

4. What themes? Are you thinking of HTC Sense's themes? or the wallpaper?

1. your firmware is 1.5 that's cupcake.
you can manually update to donut....Manually Update to 1.6 Donut on T-mobile g1 or Vodafone Magic | Android UK News, Reviews and Allsorts

3 and 4. to install Themes and backup the ROM I'd recommend rooting your Magic visit here and read up on the most popular ROM mods...

CyanogenMod | Android Community Rom based on Donut tree.

Applying such ROMs will typically update to 1.6 as well as adding new features
