As a native English speaker I would only say "the theory of...." evolution/relativity etc etc

I did not fully understand what you mean, but "The evolution theory" sounds perfectly fine to me.

I don't know, it's a grammatically sound construct, but that's just not how it's said in English. Scientific theories and laws are generally said as "the theory (or law[s]) of evolution/gravity/electromagnetism/thermodynamics/whatever". I'm sure there are exceptions, but in this case it would sound more normal to say "evolutionary theory", "gravitational theory", etc - add an adjectival suffix to use it that way.

Hmm, Google returns 177 thousand result for "The Evolution Theory". Less than your alternatives, but it's still used.
