Often the easiest route is to find a theme that looks similar to your site and go from there.
The Wordpress templating system is fairly straightforward. You typically have a file for the head, one for the footer, and templates for visible content. These are usually just plugging in a few variables and you can edit the HTML in those files directly, mix in some CSS and plunk away until you have a decent match.
