Theming is typically handled by your toolkit. For GTK, you will need to
modify files in a location like "~/.themes" or "~/.gtkrc-2."

E.g. https://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable/theming.html and

Theming can also be handled by your application. The best support for
theming tends to be implemented in this way. Unfortunately from a user's
standpoint this means each program must be customized separately. On the
other hand, toolkit wide theming support tends to not be very good. Form
components (like a SynEdit) may be drawn with colors not taken from the
toolkit's configuration.

Theming support for Lazarus might be a tall order but I think it would be
worth it. See Visual Studio's dark theme, for example.
