The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Templates are a service for rapid document writing with pre-made design and to provide people who are not LaTeX experts with a nicely designed document that they just can fill in, with an interface for customization, user's own settings.

In both cases, it's not really desirable to make changes to the template, a user should confine himself to just using it with its interface and options. If the user would like to change the programming, he (or she) should be experienced and know what he is doing. Otherwise one could break functionality. I would not call it fragile then, it's more like that it's a bit dangerous that the programming is open to see and to change by anybody.
