    check this out for moving your wordpress site to your root directory http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

    for the links, go to your dashboard, then under the Settings tab, click on Permalinks and choose the format you want to use.

    moving isn't hard really....

    for your situation, its basically go to settings->general and change BOTH urls to http://www.inkheaddesigns.com

    Click save, you may get an error message or something. Either way, don't try to do anything else from your dashboard

    Then just copy all the files and folders from /default into your root directory

    That should be it really

    For the next part, permalinks, just pick one of the options you like from the premade options other than default.

    The examples they show are how your post URLs will look, pages will always look like http://www.website.com/faq with any of the premade permalink options

    But if you are going to move, do that before setting up your permalinks....its just easier
