 Westi, What do you need?

 All you need is a child theme.

 The child theme that I am using overrides a few of the files from the
 parent theme. eg, header.php

 And the files listed in the theme editor are all from the parent theme,
 the only files that show up from the child theme is style.css and any
 files not found in the parent theme.

 The parent theme I am using is called [http://wordpress.org/extend/themes
 /grey-matter Grey Matter], and the child theme is my own which I'm calling
 Blue Matter.

 To suit my needs better I copied some of the files from Grey Matter to my
 own theme and changed those files.
