What is the best way to make modifications to this theme?

What is the suggested way to make modifications to this theme? Would one just edit the boostrap.min.css file? Or would it be better to just make a bootstrap.css file from scratch?

You should avoid directly editing files you get from other sources. But the cascading nature of CSS makes it easy to override settings as you need by including your own CSS file.

You might want to give your custom CSS file a name that won't be likely to be confused with the framework itself.
