There is no way to combine the themes or such.
It might be possible to customize the Affilotheme to make it conform more to your standards of website beauty, but to do so without understanding the marketing reasons behind the many Affilotheme design decisions could kill its marketing effectiveness.
If you are enrolled in the Affiloblueprint course, I'd recommend staying with the default design until you complete the course and get some traffic, then learn to use Google Website Optimizer for A/B split testing of any changes you make. In that way, you can beautify the site, while testing to see if your beautification edits hurt your sales or improve them, or have no effect. This is "scientific marketing" and I believe it's the best way.
Be aware that A/B split testing requires considerable traffic (else it can take weeks or months per test).
Of course Affilotheme actually offers several themes to choose from, so that should help. And it lets you change colors, etc. Changing the font family and much else is pretty easy if you advance to learning some CSS coding.
Hope this helps...
