Website Help needed!!

I know nearly nothing about Web design beyond Microsoft FrontPage (no, I'm not kidding)!

However, I have a Dreamweaver CS3 website with a template I purchased a few years ago (but am not smart enough to edit the things I want to change).

I just got Dreamweaver CS6 and would like a new template that takes advantage of what it can do - "liquid" layouts, etc. (If I start to make a layout from scratch, it comes out looking like a horrible FrontPage one!)

My really dumb questions:

- Would any of the Dreamweaver layouts I see for sale online work with CS6 specifically? (I haven't found any just for that version, so is that important?)

- Are pre-designed templates not the best way to go if I want to be able to edit? There are parts of the code in my current template that I can't seem to delete at all.

- If I want a sort of blog area to be updated frequently, while updating the front page maybe every 1-3 months, do I need to buy a whole separate WordPress template in order for it to coordinate with the website?

- My host has been Hostway back since the FrontPage days. Are there better ones to consider now?

- Do any of you here do templates or web design? I'm on a very small budget, but always happy to support a fellow Librul.

Feel free to PM me!

1. At my work we use open source web templates

Also when I was in school for software engineering, many of the other students were web programmers, and most of them use the open source templates as a base for their projects.

http://www.oswd.org/

That site is a gold mine and the templates are easy to alter for your own use.
