Move content of existing forum to new Simple Machine Forum

I have an existing forum that I have spent years developing. Unfortunately, I originally went with a forum provider that does not allow me access to the database, although I have generated all content myself. I therefore want to move the content to a new forum. I have decided to go with Simple Machine Forum. What I need is the following:

- Set up the new Simple Machine Forum (SMF) on an inexpensive yet stable and robust host (cloud)

- Extract all content from existing forum and replicate onto new forum (all posts must be copied with images and other content, and formatting must be preserved)

- Build drop-down menus that duplicates what I have on my existing forum

- Ideally, someone who is familiar with SMF, to create the same functionality that I have on my original forum (the same widgets, the same scripts (if possible), etc).

My existing forum can be viewed here: [login to view URL] Please note the database dropdown menu that needs to be re-created on the new forum.

Skills: Forum Software, HTML, MySQL, PHP, Website Design
