as far as themes go, you will find something in this thread. To some extent it duplicates some of the work that Gerda had done and that you can find in th "Themes" sticky - the basic point is that directory names in the PB360+ are closer to the PRO models than to the original 360 (e.g. "applications" isntead of "games") and wifi, that you may want to be able to call from your homepage, so you have to modify the themes and recompile them. This if you want maximum flexibility, otherwise you can go with those that are ready made.

One other nice thing you can do with the 360+ which one cannot with the 360 is that you can connect to the calibre server using wifi and transfer files in that way (though the cable is still quicker )

You can put FBreader and Coolreader (make sure you use the correct Coolreader version, the one with the PRO), and you can also create a file to make it easier to go to your favourite pages in case you want to use the browser try "my_links" here.

Here is the list of what I put on my parent's PB360+:
- the themes as in the link above;
- latest version of coolreader;
- fbreader
- history.app (used by brit_var, which allows you to change the list of last open books), wifi-off.app and wifi-on.app, used by britanica. You can also used these as standalone apps and add them to your customised themes. You will find these apps in gerda's attachment here, which has her themes - I think some of mine are different because I changed them to my taste.

I agree with Kacir that PB360 and its plus brother are really good!
