The templates won't transfer.  WordPress themes and Joomla templates have completely different structures and functions. You will have to either rebuild the template as a new theme or take this opportunity to update the site's look and feel.

The site content will transfer relatively easily.  There are several plugins available to you:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/fg-joomla-to-wordpress/

are two of the better ones.  There are multiple articles that cover using FG Joomla to WordPress:

Hello Jason


So, could you point a way to migrate from Joomla 1.5 to the newest 3.4 ?

The site we are working in is 1.5 and had a hacker attack.
