He will "calm down" in about 2 years. In the meantime he is being a normal kitten. You need to channel all that energy by playing with him.

Kittens need a ton of interactive play time every day. Provide him with furniture he can jump and climb on, scratching trees, cardboard box forts, paper bags (cut off handles) for tunnels and forts, a variety of toys and play with him every day at least four regular timed play sessions a day.

Put away things you don't want him to get into. Kitten proofing is the only way. You can't teach a kitten not to play with toilet paper rolls. If he wants to play with them he will. Put the toilet paper somewhere he can't get at it, and give him something esle to play with like a stuffed animal of the same size.

As for his food stealing habit it sounds like he is not getting enough or the right kind of food to eat. Kittens need a LOT of food, because they are growing so fast. They need protein from meat, and not a lot of junky fillers.

Feed him a high meat protein low carbohydrate CANNED diet.

If you need more specifics, feel free to ask more questions.
