The macOS theme is undeniably the cleanest looking theme that any operating system has. How about getting the same theme on your Ubuntu? A collection of macOS themes is available on different online sources, pick any popular site and download your favorite theme from there.
From the link, I gather that you've installed the theme by adding the repository and installed it like any regular program from Software Center /apt-get , so removing it should be just like how you would uninstall any other program.
These commands should undo what installing the theme effectively did, (all the extra packages gotten for the theme should be removed). As for CompizConfig Settings Manager and Gnome Tweak Tool, they are handy even if you don't want the theme, so it's okay to have them on your system, just undo any changes that you might have done.

Before anything else, if you want your desktop to look like a Mac's, you'll need to install the right themes. A Linux theme called macOS Sierra does exactly that. To download it, open a terminal and enter:
Inside the GNOME Tweak Tool, go to the Appearance section. Change the GTK+ theme to MacOS-Sierra-master. Both your application windows and the Plank dock should change in appearance. As a final touch, change your wallpaper by heading to the Desktop section in the Tweak Tool. In there, click on the Background Location button.
You'll be presented with a way of choosing a new wallpaper. A Mac-like one is located with your theme (named Wallpaper.jpg), so navigate to it at ~/.themes/macOS-Sierra-master. You might have to show hidden files to see this folder. If that's the case, right click in the file selection window, and click the Show Hidden Files entry.
Interestingly, Plasma puts its icon themes in a different location. Because of this, you'll need to move your macOS icon theme folder elsewhere. Use these terminal commands to do this:
Having done this, return to the settings menu, and go to Appearance > Application Style > GNOME Application Style. Under the GTK Themes section, select macOS-Sierra-master. Then, change your icon theme to Yosemite Icons.
Then, go to Window Decorations, and select the Get New Decorations option. Search for a theme called Breezemite and install it. Set it as your decoration theme.
The Cinnamon desktop needs a bit more tweaking than other desktops. Open System Settings > Appearance > Themes. You'll be presented with a few theme options. Change everything but the Icons and Mouse Pointer entries to macOS-Sierra-master. Then, change the Icons entry to use GnomeYosemiteIcons-master.
For some final touches, you can change your wallpaper to something more Mac-like. Open the Backgrounds setting, then add the ~/.themes/macOS-Sierra-master folder as a new background directory. You may have to show hidden folders to see it.

It is available in the Software Center. Simply search for communitheme and install it. Restart the system and at the login screen, click on the settings icon and select Ubunut with communitheme snap session.
