It can be a basic launcher problem or a corrupt wallpaper.
Having your phone rooted, don't you have any backup? E.g. Titanium backup, clockwork?
The issue is, I don't know any practical way to install a new launcher to a phone not having file browsing capability.
If I were you, I would reinstall the firmware which is the fastest and most reliable way. Of course, anything in phone memory (not the sd card) will be gone.
First try factory reset via boot, (official htc page)

If it doesn't help, try instructions there

Can you still get to recovery? If yes, then boot to recovery, wipe cache and dalvik cache (under advanced), and simply flash the ROM again. This way you shouldn't lose any apps.
