    It really doesn't take much at all to do this. You just have to find a really stripped down template (I prefer the skeleton template) and change the css to how your site looks now. Then you'll have to add the html to each page or post.

    You can either manually create a WordPress theme based on your current static HTML site or Install a pre-made theme and simply migrate your content.

    First, understand overall WordPress theme function (read here: http://codex.wordpress.org/) So basically you'll need files like:

    header.php
    footer.php
    index.php
    single.php
    page.php
    search.php
    style.php
    sidebar.php (optional)

    As long as you understand HTML/CSS, you can basically build a WordPress theme. Here is a very basic and simple how WordPress theme works:


    <html>
    <meta>
    <body>
    <div class="container>
    //================ header.php ================/

    //================ index.php ================/
    Home page!

    //================ footer.php ================/
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>

    This is a very complicated thing so I don’t have enough knowledge to guide anyone on how to do it but I can definitely help and that’s by suggest a popular site from where I learned building a proper web site and that’s lowhosting it’s a very good site to learn all about web site and also it’s free so why not just read from there and I am sure you will get your problem solved without much research.

    The complicity depends on you skills and knowledge of web design and programming. IF you have basic expertise than you won't get any difficulties

    You should have good knowledge of PHP. Although you can get theme coding from any theme you pick from Wordpress

    There is no need to choose a host with the "fastest" ticket response time, but choose one who you feel you communicate well with. A host who understands your specific needs, and who can sit down with you and talk about what your needs are, and how that host can accommodate for those needs.
