    Hey styrmand,

    Migrations can be very painful, but it seems you are in the right track. There are many ways to organize your code and bring the right data and structure to WordPress.

    However, with WordPress you might want to build a custom plugin, if the functionality you want to have is very specific. You don’t want too much code for functionality living in your theme, because if you want to change themes in the future you can safely do so without breaking your site, or relying too much on your child theme. Therefore, although you can pack a lot of functionality within functions.php, you might want to create a custom plugin to handle part of your code.

    As to the second part of your question, there are lots of good content out there about migrations to WordPress. My suggestion would be to start with some video content on WordPress.tv: https://wordpress.tv/?s=migration. You can find great lectures with people explaining their experiences and case studies.
