Plugin — A plugin modifies an interface’s features or functionality, and it may also include changes to the interface’s appearance.
Style — A style uses CSS, images, and other assets to modify the appearance of the entire cPanel interface without changes to its functionality or features.
You can create and apply styles to an entire server or a specific reseller’s accounts, or you can create them for distribution.

Theme — A theme applies an overlay on the skeletal framework for all of the interfaces.
cPanel & WHM currently ships with one default cPanel theme and one default WHM theme.
