Power BI offers a system that you can use to easily share and apply a theme to multiple reports. This feature is fully documented here: Use report themes in Power BI Desktop

In a few words, a theme consists of a series of appearance settings, such as a global font family or text color, along with specific visual properties, such as the axis color of a line chart. You can define these properties in a JSON file that represents the theme.

The only custom visuals properties that can be controlled through a theme are colors.
