Do they use some engine to accomplish this?

Most of the styling will be done using a CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) file which allows having the same (or similar) HTML structure across sites, but with vastly different designs.

Where to read about stackexchange internals at all?

There is this question: Which tools and technologies are used to build the Stack Exchange Network?

Then a number of Stack Exchange employees has blogs on which they occasionally talk about their work.

Off the top of my head:

You should add this list to your answer, the list of Stack Exchange Team Members, which will help supplement your incomplete list. ;) –  jmort253 Oct 19 '12 at 20:20
