I have currently implementing some uxtheme-based functions. I'm loading uxtheme with LoadLibrary. If it fails than I don't use my functions. My question: do I need to check Window version before loading uxtheme? May it be possible to install (crazy, but...) uxtheme under some Win9x systems?

No, don't bother to check the windows version. Even if it is XP, the 'Themes' service might be disabled anyway. LoadLibrary exists in all Windows versions. Checking the result of LoadLibrary and testing your program with the 'Themes' service disabled should be enough.
