First, I cannot find the settings to adjust the Cinnamon Screensaver.

Please tell me  how.

Also, I want to know how I can set cinnamon themes. 

Are there themes that I can download for it?

Hi Dudley,
The steps to manually install cinnamon screen saver are as follows:
1) To manually install the cinnamon screen saver take the backup of the original theme by using the following command:
sudo cp -R /usr/share/cinnamon/theme/usr/share/cinnamon/themes_backup
2) Download the theme from the cinnamon official website
3) Unpack the downloaded theme and save them on the desktop
4) Copy the data from the unpacked folder to the theme folder of cinnamon
sudo cp -f /home/howtoforge/Desktop/unpackedfolder/cinnamon/*/usr/share/cinnamon/theme
5) After executing the command the theme can be set in the system
