Try CMS 2 CMS (google it, the forum breaks the URL), or try a Joomla Extension, J2XML. Note, it won't import everything from wordpress, but will migrate posts, pages, links, tags etc (I think).
https://extensions.joomla.org/extension/j2xml/ and you might also investigate the other related J2XML extensions by same author for importing images and users.

Yes. You can do it. There is a special project Joomlashack. You are written in more detail here: Converting a WordPress Site to Joomla.

"This tutorial will show you how to move an existing WordPress site over to Joomla. This will work for many WordPress versions up to 5 and will work for Joomla 3."

Therefore I do not see a problem ;)

There's a world of difference between the technical solution to "how to convert/migrate from Wordpress (or anything else) to Joomla" and the actual question(s) posted by people on this forum. The technical solution is easy: it takes a few moments to find one. The real question that most of these one-time posters are asking is "How do I use the Joomla! forum to advertise my non-Joomla website(s)?"

People "ask" this question and they're never heard from again. The simplest answer is to ignore them.
