I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

this site will help you out a lot.

I've converted some with a tool and some worked, others failed.  too bad I can't find the awesome tool I had I think it even worked with your themes and tags well. I forget what it was called. But most theme conversion would be easy as long as custom menus aren't involved (that use flash or silverlight)

the roughest conversion I went through messed up the tags when the client had 32 tags per item on average!!! They really should have taken it easy! LOL.

but most of the time it's painless. I've done it to 8 blogs and only 2 had real pains. I no longer offer this service, unfortunately. (only on special request and not free)
