The victim can only file a complaint in the jurisdictional Police station and it is left to the investigating officer to register the complaint on facts and evidence in the case and to state such section in First Information report.

Yes you have interpreted it correctly and those are the sections of IPC that will be applicable for committing theft as defined under section 378 of IPC- Theft is defined as the act of moving movable property out of the possession of another person without that person's consent with the intent of taking that property without that person's consent. But you will have to let the police decide what charges to file in the case after you make a complaint.
