Is it possible to create a customized header (that includes a masthead and the navigation), and somehow place it in a PHP include and then add that to the 'header.php' K2 file?

I don't want to customize the style.css file and recreate what I already have on my static site.  I just want to take the static site's header and navigation and implement it place of the 'header' portion of the Wordpress blog.

If you are going to successfully modify the PHP and CSS of a wordpress theme, you should do it in the main PHP and CSS files of that theme's template files.   Remember, you can back up the original, and just change it and then save it.  I've seen a lot of problems by trying to ADD a different CSS and PHP file pair, and it is not really the right way to do it.  Backup the files as is, and modify them directly to get what you want.
