Possible, but not certain. Your site was indexed as a WP site. The info remains the same, but now as a J site. It will have influence on your ranking, but not negative. Simply because you change your site and the way it is build, will be reflected.

Mod. Note: Relocated the topic to the SEO Forum.

Upload a new sitemap to Google. There are extension in Joomla for site-maps.
If you keep the same urls, there will be no issue.

If you keep the same URLs as for your WordPress site, everything should be OK.
If not, make sure you redirect the old URLs to the new URLs using a 301 redirect.

Not Sure!
1. Setup extension from Joomla instead all plugins of Wordpress
2. Update XML_index sitemap to Google webmaster tool
3. 301 Redirect old URLs or 404 URL to new URLs or homepage

More likely than not. Just don't forget to set up 301 redirects from the old pages to the new.

If you make sure that all text is the same (H1, H2 etc) and all redirrects are done probably (and the site is not slower), it probably wont mean anything. It might go up/down until Google have been through your new site.
