  3. Can the current content on the website be displayed via WP?

    I don't know where you website is or what it contains. WordPress.com hosts many types of blogs and you can determine if the kind of blog you want to establish is allowed or not allowed very easily. Blog content at WordPress.com is subject to these policies:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/advertising/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/affiliate-links/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/suspended-blogs/
    http://en.wordpress.com/tos/

    There is only one advertising program called WordAds at WordPress.com. It’s for blogs on their own domains
    http://en.wordpress.com/apply-for-wordads/
    http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2011/11/29/wordads/

    Aside from a blog being accepted into WordAds, no blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work or products created or services provided by anyone other than yourself is allowed on free hosted wordpress.com blogs. E-commerce transactions via shopping carts and the like cannot be conducted on free blogs from and being free hosted by wordpress.com
