Some adjustments are possible from layman but if you want special changes then you will have to get a professional designer.
Most of the editing comes from the front page of the MOODLE and the theme that you are using in the process. Let us scan all parts one by one so that you can understand fine aspects of the process.

I have juts written few common elements which are seen everywhere. Front page management is extremely important because this is what decides what to be done with the entire layout of the page. Many small aspects such as color, text, icons etc are manipulated in this stage of the editing.

It should be noted that customization changes will be only visible when anyone log inside. With the help of expert designer, front page without logging in can be also changed. Picture below explains how the editing results are visible after customization.
Front Page Editing:
For customization, either you have to login as the administration or should have permission as editor. When you will go inside the control panel then select page and then front page setting. After your click, all those elements will get automatically loaded after your selection. Let me explain some of the thing that you would be looking or the front page customization process:
Website name: you would be aware of the website’s title. Most of the time, company’s keep their own name but you can change as per requirements.
Abbreviated name of the website: breadcrumb trail is active here.
