I'm looking for some simple theme(s)that would work well for this, or some links to some example sites that I could show a developer and have them come up with a solution for me.
Still, you can cruise through these:
Also, google searches on terms like "wordpress CMS themes", "wordpress magazine themes" "premium wordpress CMS themes" and things like that should bring up some of the better examples.
I'm looking for something where instead of having the long blog on the front page, it will be "page" and all the other other pages on the site will be "pages".
If I remember correctly, the home.php (as opposed to index.php) template is specifically customizable for the homepage. You can do just pages, not posts, and completely customize the page templates - as well as the archive template.
There are some tutorials for customizing Kubrick if you hunt around a bit. That's the original "default" used with WP so there should be plenty, in addition to there being some books that go into detail.
Here's the basic on pages
As an alternative to the Plugin, WordPress will recognize a "home.php" document in your template directory and use it rather than index.php to theme your front page.
