Changing skins for Mac PMS

I am running PMS on an MBP on Lion and I cannot change the skin/theme

 ~/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Centre/Content/Resources

I am told that there should be a 'addons' folder here but I have nothing.

    PMS doesn't have skins, it looks you are talking about PMC.  PMC has been replaced with Plex/HT so you might want to download and install it instead.  Plex/HT also has a brand new skin (as well as 3rd party skins)

    Primary PMS: Ubuntu 13.10, i7-4771, 16GB Ram, Samsung 840 Pro 512GB
    Media Storage: 2 x ReadyNas Pro Business 18TB mounted by NFS to Plex Server
    Desktop Clients: 1 x Windows 7 27", 1 x 15.4 Retina MBP, 2 x17" MBP, 1 x 13" MB, 1 x13" MBA
    Mobile Clients: 2 x iPhone 5s, 3 x iPhone 5, 3 x iPhone 4s, 3 x iPhone 4, 2 x iPad 3, 2 x iPad 2
    Airplay & PlexConnect Targets: 4 x ATV3

    Excellent. Thanks. Is PHT compatible with Preen?

    Preen will need updating, no idea if that has been done/planned.

    Is Git required? It's a name I read a lot on here without quite knowing what it is?

    git is required - it always has been.  Apple used to include it by default in OSX but no longer does.

    The exist way to install it, is just run a terminal windows in OSX, type git and hit enter.  OSX will then prompt you to install some tools, of which git is part of.
