Maybe you're referring to 'selected' items?
The main colours for a theme are right in the first line, e.g. 'gtk-color-scheme = "base_color:#D8D8D8\nfg_color:#363636\ntooltip_fg_color:#ffffff\nselected_bg_color:#4D6E92\nselected_fg_color:#ffffff\ntext_color:#242424\nbg_color:#C5C5C5\ntooltip_bg_color:#080808\nlink_color:#4a90f9\nbg_dark_color:#AAAAAA"'

'focusstyle' is for showing what item is focused (like a button or a tab) so you can know where you are to navigate with the keyboard. Most traditional GTK2 themes have this enabled already.
