Effect on SEO when doing a "Total Replace" of a website

Hi All - I need to wipe out an old site that has decent traffic, and replace it with a new site on that same Domain Name, possibly hosted elsewhere, and possibly using WordPress.  Can anyone offer some guidance to minimize the hit on SEO, for example:

* If JUST the site's IP Address changes, as in transferring to a new Hosting Company, will that effect it's SEO?

* Is there a way to tell Google that the site is still "mine", for example, like you can tell Google with a 301 Perm redirect that you have changed Domain Names?

* In general, is the use of WordPress these days going to hurt the SEO?

Any other comments are appreciated before we ReDesign & ReSubmit

Thanks all!
