ammadeyy,
yeah, its possible to restore the db from sql server 2000 to sql server 2005.
But in order to avail the features of sql 2005, you must change the COMPATABLILITY LEVEL of the db to 90

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

In the properties of the database you have the compatibity setting.
you can also do it with tsql if you want.

yes of course its possible to restore a sql2k database in sql2k5

but you'll still need to review all your stored procedure and code to ensure that they continue to work correctly
especially before changing the compatability level.

Yes, you can restore from 2000 to 2005, it is going back from 2005 to 2000 that will cause issues. I agree with lowfatspread - review the stored procs/functions to be sure that they work the same after they are restored and upgraded. You can also add the new Try...Catch error handling.

The two ways to copy the log files are '
1. Stop the Sql server service and copy
2. Right Click on the database and bring it off-line, then copy the log of that particular db , after copying put it back online
