This is what I would do. PHP is not hard to understand, WP has nice
macros and some map to Roller macros. Use the Roller Template Guide as

I would copy then modify the WP template directly, but either approach
would work as long as you duplicate the HTML structure, CSS classes,
etc. and use the same CSS files as the WP templates.

Yes. Option #2 is more work and more error prone.
