The aero-drop folder only contains a mouse theme if I saw correctly. The only borders I saw are emerald, so install emerald and use the emerald manager to select and install the .emerald theme. Then apply emerald as window decorator by 'emerald --replace' (this will be forgotten the next time you log in) or install fusion-icon, run it, rightclick the tray icon it provides and choose emerald in the decorator submenu (add fusion-icon to your startup applications and the borders will be remembered for future sessions).

The error btw says that a folder already exists with the name that the theme-to-install has. But since installing themes only means they are extracted in ~/.themes you can do that manually yourself in a filebrowser. Emerald themes get installed in ~/.emerald/themes.
