I am not sure you will have much luck trying to install Gnome themes on XFCE4? If you are using XFCE4, the Wiki there may help: https://wiki.xfce.org/howto/install_new_themes

If you actually want to use Gnome then you will need to install that instead of XFCE4. I have not used Manjaro before, but currently use Ubuntu, which uses Gnome by default.

Second that - gnome-themes is for gnome only. Personally, I would stick with xfce4, far fewer problems than gnome and far more efficient.

Yes, XFCE4 does come highly recommended and is really snappy. I only use Gnome on my newly built Ryzen 7 2700X - it is so quick that I tested both Gnome and XFCE on my old and new hardware - on the old hardware, Gnome was noticeably slower (but fine) comparing to XFCE. On my new machine, Gnome is lightening quick to the point that you could not tell that XFCE is quicker. I still run XFCE on all other machines (apart from the obligatory *cough* Windows 10 machines from work).

So, I dislike Gnome because of 2 reasons: it is a resource pig (1gb at idle) and the devs had literally neutered it so badly that it has become like a tablet OS where it is impossible to do anything with it. My .02.

To be fair, I have only recently started using Gnome because I wanted to give the latest Ubuntu a spin and see how it goes. I have been using XFCE since I first switched from Windows permanently a few years ago.

So far, not many complaints - I do a bit of gaming and the experience with Steam has been much better in Gnome than XFCE (just some annoying glitches). Also, the video conferencing software that my company uses used to crash if you tried sending a screenshot via the chat feature (which is a common task). This is no longer happening in Gnome.

While I am still fond of XFCE and would happily recommend it to anyone, it just so happens that the main issues I had with it are not issues in Gnome.

manjaro comes with archlinux' and AUR repos enabled afaik.
that will give you plenty of choice for supported and/or regularly updated ui & icon themes.
using stuff from *-look sites can be messy.
