Working on a replacment joomla webiste

I currently have a none cms ( Dremwevare ) website on a godaddy hosting account.
I will be purchasing a joomla template and will attempt to move the data and pages to the new joomla website. I am not sure how all of that will happen . Can I work on the template on my own computer and then move it over to the hosting account when all done.

yes you can, but then you have to upload your local to your server. (Backup 'local', Restore 'server')

for the backup/restore process try akeeba component that helps you doing the backup/restore process an easy job.

install a wamp server on your machine . run joomla from your computer. Edit the site the way you want. Back up the site .
Go to your server install joomla and restore the back up you created.

Also Joomla templates are created with Dreamweaver. there are tutorials available how to create a template for joomla. Thats incase you need to convert your old site to Joomla !
