  • You'll implement your app the same as any other. If you already have a website then you have a start on the scenarios your users will need. You may be able to reuse your back end code, depending on how it is written: if it is exposed as a web service then you can connect your client UI to that.

  • No. Windows Store apps run on the local machine. They are not web sites.

  • I'm not sure what exactly you mean by "implement a website".

    You can model your Windows Store app off of a web site and you may be able to share some of the code (model code and web services are likely. You'll probably want to rewrite the UI, but may keep some HTML elements).

    You can also use a WebView control to view part of your site within your app.

  • This question is extremely vague and broad.

    Maybe start by downloading some samples here:

    Windows 8.1 Samples

    And then ask any specific questions that arise.
