First use the fundamental theorem of calculus: for an arbitrary function 
h[x,y], we have

   D[Integrate[h[x,y],{x,y,Infinity}],y] ==
     Integrate[Derivative[0, 1][h][x, y], {x, y, Infinity}] - h[y, y]

Now define h,

  h[x_, y_] = Simplify[g[x, y] Sinh[theta[x, y]] Cosh[theta[x, y]]^2];

and compute its derivative with respect to y.

  dhdy[x_, y_] = Simplify[D[h[x,y],y]];

Now we can define f:

  f[y_] := NIntegrate[dhdy[x, y], {x, y, Infinity}, 
   WorkingPrecision -> 15, AccuracyGoal -> 20, 
   MinRecursion -> 3, MaxRecursion -> 10] - h[y, y]

Cheers,
Paul
