Check out UIManager and its setLookAndFeel method. You can use the getInstalledLookAndFeels method to get the installed look&feels.
Keep in mind that you need to set the look&feel before you create your user interface. If you set it later you need to call update the UI - use SwingUtilities.updateComponentTreeUI for this.
