In the main theme folder, where there are the folders like en-US and Shell , make a folder "Wallpaper" and put your other wallpapers there .

Now, if desktop background shuffle is on, it will be changed .... with the speed as you selected there .

You are OK here Then do as Arc said by making a Wallpaper folder in your theme folder.
Then (I am using theme 1)
#1
Go to Personalization and apply your theme

#2
Go to Desktop Background
-2.png
#3
As Arc said set your backgrounds and check Shuffle + time and Save changes

#4
You should have Unsaved Theme choose it and the click on Save theme
-4.png
#5
Give it your theme name and Save
Name:  5.png
Views: 3
Size:  16.0 KB
#6
Now your theme is saved but you need to right click on it and choose Save theme for sharing

#7
Give it your theme name and Save (I saved it to a new folder on the desktop)
Name:  7.png
Views: 5
Size:  91.5 KB
#8
You will need something like 7-Zip Download to Extract the theme pack
-8.png
#9
Inside the theme pack copy the .theme file
-9.png
#10
Go to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes and replace the .theme file with the one from the theme pack in step #9

#11
If you right click on the .theme file and open with note pad you can see the changes.

Now you have a theme folder and a .theme file you can share
