    That is a forum, not a blog or regular, page-based website. I am afraid I have no idea.

    You could try to do an XML import, provided that website has an RSS feed for each thread. Otherwise, I think you’ll have to do copy/paste.

    Does it have an Export function? Because if it does, you can presumably just Export from there and Import into here. I have no idea what format the threads will come up in, though, because you are really converting apples to oranges here.

    It will NOT work as a forum once you’ve imported it here. As long as your readers know that, and that they won’t be able to post to it, then fine.

    No, the URLs of WordPress.com will never be the same structure as the URLs of that site. All of the links will be broken. Every single one of them.
