SEO for website changing from static site to wordpress

Hello, we are in the process of moving our site into the CMS wordpress. With that being said our site has been around for a while thus our pages are high in the search engine list when you search for us. I don't want people going to our old pages but I don't want to drop in web presense either. My web developer mentioned a couple of things:

There is an SEO plugin for WP that Icould use. I would have to copy what I currently have as mine meta information and transplant it over to the plugin.

I will also be using the friendly URLS. Seeing how in the actual url there will be keywords which would be the title of the pages or key words in the persons search.

What other steps would I need to take to keep my traffic and ultimately increase it

You can do
1. forward your old web page to New web address ( URL )
2. on your old web page , have a link as : Our New Web site .  Let user click or programme it so it automatically go to New site after 30 seconds or 1 minutes.

We was thinking adding a redirect to every page that is outside of the WP which would take them to the new site. This way people will automatically be driven to the new site if they go to a subpage that is outside of the WP module.
