dynamic rewriting of pages in my Wordpress site to behave as a separate website
That sounds kinda like an apples-and-oranges question. There are two different things:
the URL that the user sees
the physical directory that your physical files physically live in
It obviously saves trouble if they are approximately the same, so directory/subdir/filename.html refers to a file called filename.html which lives in a directory "subdir" which in turn lives in a directory "directory". For, uhm, a given definition of "physical location". ("If this bit has a magnetic charge, and this one and this one but not that one over there...")
This thread has meandered a bit. Was there a point where you laid out the two basics?
#1 what the various URLs are
#2 where the various files "really" live.
At any given time there are at least two threads in Apache with closely overlapping topics. This is no help either.
