Is there a way to populate the custom field dropdown box when you install a theme? I want to make it easier for users and avoid having them add the terms manually when they first set it up.

the better way would be to create your own meta box nd to add one to your new/edit page screen you can use add_meta_box() function (look at the example at the bottom for the examples), you can also use this class which is nicely documented and does most of the job for you.

You could use the Custom Field Template plugin to create a nice interface for your users.
