@elearing: they are templates which are made up of layouts, theme colors, and theme fonts. Once you download a slide, you also download the slide master and themes for those slides. Those can be applied to other slides. All you need to do is apply whatever of the template elements you want. Most people stick with the layout and just apply the theme fonts and colors to match the template they want.

Keep in mind that slides may have unique layouts so applying a templated layout to slides that aren't the same will not handle the content the same way, but it will inherit the other elements of the template.
