I tried out a GNOME Shell theme from on my main account/login user. The theme must be broken because it won't load, and crashes that login. I am currently on the guest account. Is there any way to edit that account's theme to default from this account?

Log in as your normal user. Just chose a different session at the login screen. After that you should be able to make the changes you need using gnome-tweak-tool or by some other means.
