This is what joomla is all about.

Login to joomla administrator section

Go to menu > main menu
-> click on Home
-> on the left Parameters (Basic) (set Columns = 1)
-> subpages can be other menu items
(set columns = 2 , or 3 )

depending on need.

Regards,
CS

In order to do this you go into the templates section, you setup your main template as the default template for the site.  This will essentially become your home page.

Upload you second template into the templates section via ftp and then edit this template and in the menu assignment options on the left hand side you tell it which pages to use this second template for.
