Uprade Joomla e-commerce site to Version 1.1

We have a medium size ( 300 pages approx.) Joomla! [url removed, login to view] e-commerce site ( using VirtueMart [url removed, login to view]) that we wish to upgrade to the latest Joomla/Virtuemart version 1.1.

We are looking for a free lancer to achieve this for us.

The site is [url removed, login to view]

We use sh404SEF and have custom URLS that we wish to preserve as these have high google ranking.

We have other extensions and some customisations ( ie google analytics module) that we would also like to preserve if possible with the upgrade.

We are open to a new template or customisations, new extensions as required to enhance the site or assist with the upgrade.

We would prefer the upgrade is performed off-line and uploaded to a pre-production site on our host server for review/verification prior to final upload to the production site.

Further clarification re scope:
1) The upgrade is to the latest Joomla package that works with Virtuemart ie understand VirtueMart 1.1.4 is the latest stable version available compatible with Joomla! 1.5.x? Would aim for this configuration if considered stable.
2) Had intended the site to remain live whilst the upgrade is achieved off-line. Therefore would like assistance in migrating new customers and orders obtained during upgrade development period ( ie 4 -7 days etc as quoted) to new site if site.
- ie the site downtime is minimised ( ie < 1 day down)
- An alternative is to stage the upgrade and de-bug off-line with a list of changes, then perform this on tyhe live site ( with suitable backup in case things go wrong) and re-apply all changes etc over say a 6 hour max outage window? We are happy with either approach and would prefer the one that mininises risk of lost data or site downtime.
