Combining ALL the things!

Hope me! I have a Wordpress foodie blog and I have a kitchenware retail website. I want to take the blog and export it to my website. Somehow. It gets a little more complicated and I'd really appreciate some help walking me through the various procedures. Wise advise on blog organisation would also be deeply appreciated. Apologies in advance for the longwinded rambling to follow.

Years ago I set up a blog which I'll call myoldblog.wordpress.com. I then started a business and made a website mybusiness.com.au. Thinking that it would be a good idea to try to link the two, I started a new wordpress blog mybusiness.wordpress.com and exported my old blog post and comments to the new blog. I left the old one up as it was attracting some good traffic from Google but made it obvious that it was now defunct and not being updated. People still comment on it anyway. However people also comment on the new one as well so salvaging both lots of comments would be nice if possible. I understand that the traffic from Google would be lost as the links change - regrettable but not a disaster.
And part two is that I'd like to put my food blog up there alongside my retail business - they're complimentary and I think one would drive pageviews to the other. My business site is basic HTML that I wrote on Frontpage a long time ago and could do with a new redesign.
What's the best way of combining the two things? I'm happy using Wordpress running the blog side of things but the templates don't seem to work for the retail stuff I'm after and I don't have enough experience to tailor-make one and not a lot of time to learn. I'd hire someone but I've no idea where to start or what to pay. Where the hell do I start with this? I'm really damn confused!
