I've built a website using the Autos theme from Frog Themes: http://www.findaporsche.com/
I'm generally very happy with it (although it's still a work in progress). However, I would like to be able to customize the theme a bit. In particular:
1, I'd like to lose the default search box on the left-hand side of the homepage (I don't need this) and replace it with some friendly intro text.
2, I'd like to be able to make the slides on the homepage clickable so they link to the relevant page.
How easy would this be to do for someone with little experience of web design (i.e. me!).
