Internal Website development

We are a small company so there would only be a maximum of 8 users and  have an existing intranet that has been developed over the years by various personnel (no longer with us). It runs on IIS on our small business server 2011 and connects to our SQL Server 2008R2.

The system was developed on old versions of Frontpage and Visual Studio 2005. There is a mixture of language scripting in the system, these being

Java (appears for navigation purposes on a header page)
VB script

The files appear to be either asp (from original Frontpage)
or aspx (from visual studio development)

in the main, with a few html and JScript files

The system extracts the domain user logged in using "WSCript.Network" control.

When I open the project in Visual Studio 2005 there are numerous errors, which I presume are due to legacy code. However the website still works.

I want to be able to continue to develop the system, but ensure it can be completely developed in the same environment.

What would be the best development environment?
If it is Visual studio, could I get away with the free version?
How would I go about importing the files from the website into the package?
How would I go about decoding the errors or updating sections of code?
There appears to be numerous file that may be redundant in various sub directories of the website folder. Howe would I go about verifying these are redundant and removing them.
Please bear in mind that I am not a programmer yet! I have some basic experience with VB and vba.

Many thanks in advance.

My recommendation would be to hire some experienced person and have him take a look at all the applications. Let him recommend the changes and how to go about it and then you can make the changes.

The successor to Active Server Pages, ASP.NET websites utilize the .NET framework to produce dynamic, data and content-driven web applications and services. ASP.NET code can be written using any .NET supported language. As of 2009, ASP.NET can also apply the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern to web applications
