There are over 400 slideshow extensions in Joomla. Some of them must fill your needs.

The template of your site is very basic and is not hard to make. Probably similar templates is available from the template vendors.

The (Avada) theme as shown on your site can be rather simple rebuild with the Gantry Framework (http://gantry.org/) and it will look if proper done 1:1 as in WP and when template ready you use https://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/extension/migration-a-conversion/data-import-a-export/cms 2 cms to move the content etc

You will find the extension by searching for "cms 2 cms".

The link is destroyed because the forum add spaces.
