And where could I pick up some graphics with a black theam?

XGX makes some black ones with like flames and skulls and stuff.
As for carbon fiber look powder coating, I don't know how they could do it. I think the closest paint would be like a matte black. I know you can get a stick on coating that looks like carbon fiber but my bet is that it would last about 10 seconds before scuffing up.
It takes a lot of work to strip down to your frame, even if you do, most places won't touch it because of the oil tank in the frame it's self.
Spend the money and get a good set of wheels like excel hubs, rims and spokes. The rims are the same as stock but would be black in your case, the hubs are much better and the spokes are much thicker and stronger.

on the other hand, if you can find someone to powder coat your frame, i dont think it would be 'too' difficult to strip your frame
maybe use some paint stripper and a wire brush drill attatchment
wr frame Vs HQ tunna that im doing at the moment seems easy hehe
make sure though that once your back to bare metal you get it done ASAP as surface rust will appear very quickly
