Welcome to the forums, knowledgenotebk. I'm really not clear about your question - are you looking for someone here to do the work for you? If so, that's not the kind of thing we offer here. If I misunderstand, please explain a bit more.
As a general rule it is always possible to change the appearance and content of any page using HTML and CSS.

How you do it will depend on how the page is laid out in the first place. If the page has been created with an editor that generates a lot of redundant code the underlying html and css may be pretty well unreadable (eg saving html from an MSOffice application).
When you talk about making a page more "visual" remember that use of small screen devices such as smartphones and tablets is on the increase.

piatknow, thanks for your thoughtful input, here's its URL,
Some feedback suggested to change the yellow highlighting for it's too striking, not a bad idea, don't know what background color would be good for blue text.

Hardly any, unless your target audience is under 25. Very light blue/green/lilac, maybe. Assuming you mean darkish blue text. Light on dark would get you a whole different set of answers.
You don't need to post an actual link; if you identify the color(s) you can get opinions. For comparison purposes: I realized recently that I'd managed to design something with light green text on a dark green background. But the exact shades make all the difference between painful and restful ;)

Think color wheel. A complimentary scheme shows the compliment of blue as orange, and dominance/submission dictates the (back)ground should be the submissive. A good starting point is a low chroma high value orange - something in the very light tan range.
Whole thing goes out the window if someone's colorblind though. There's a reason newspapers are printed with black ink on white paper.

I like your idea of orange, it's easier on the eyes, thank you.

One thing to remember - warm colors like red and orange are usually not as consistent across various monitors as cool colors. So if you do use orange, yellow, red and the like - be sure to test it well.

@tedster, that's good to know, thanks.
