  1. How to change the window color (default: white) in Oneiric? (In Natty, I could do it in Appearance.)

  2. (If 1 doesn't work) How to change the background color in Gedit? (In Natty, by right clicking I could find profile or something like that.)

The window theme you mean? – Uri Herrera Sep 29 '11 at 5:51
No, just color I meant, as I could in Natty. – Robin002 Oct 8 '11 at 11:36

The tweakability of Oneiric has suffered due to the switch to gnome 3, so for #2:

gedit supports the themes available in package libgtksourceview2.0-common, and if you are willing to, you can create your own or download a large selection from the net.

Click on Edit/Preferences, on the preferences dialog switch to Fonts & Themes and pick a theme.
