Will jotform work with my WordPress site; can I create the fields I need; and do I need the $9.95 version?

    I just mistakenly submitted extensive (wordy) questions on the paying customer forum.  I'm certainly willing to pay for one month of use to have my questions answered.  I hate to reask them, but they are:  Will this form builder work with my WordPress Site at www.MelodyBeattie.net (my host is IXWebhosting.com).  I don't understand all the "stuff" about self-hosted, etc.  I'm trying to learn as fast as I can, and building my own sites with the help of a friend instead of getting ripped of, and ending p with a site that looks exactly like everyone else's.  I purchased exclusive rights to a WordPress theme for the grief site.  Now I want to add a small store.  Only two products will be sold directly through the store -- one requires an order form -- the "Touch of You" Grief Quilts (made from the jeans of a lost loved one).  I already went through a huge learning curve on building forms on ZoHo only to find that Zoho forms can't be inserted on WordPress because you need to insert them via an IFrame -- and that cannot be done on my site.  Does the same hold true for your forms?  Also, how much freedom will I have to create fields?  Creating your own quilt requires extensive forms, both for the pre-ordering inquiry (free) process and the worksheets and invoices for after a person makes an order.  Two forms will be extremely long and detailed.  I'm more than wiling to pay $9.95 a month if the forms will work, and work well.  My friend (who's helping me) is stuck on a train from Georgia to L.A. I'm a bestselling author and screenplay writer who's way, way past deadline and needs to get back to her work.  I can't wait until my friend gets here to finish creating these forms.  So after this extremely wordy introduction my questions are:  can I embed JotForms on my WordPress site (my host is IXWebHosting.com) -- but as I said, I don't understand all that -- my site is just "there" in the ethers but I do pay for hosting and bought exclusive rights to my theme; 2) how much freedom do I have to create my own  jotform?  These will be unique, distinctive and several (at least two) will be several pages long.  3) I'm guessing I need the $9.95 program.  Do you agree?  If I could get my questions answered in the next 14 hours, I'll happily pay $9.95 for accurate answers (to jotform). I don't want to waste the next four days creating forms, only to have to redo them on yet another form-building site.  I also need one (like yours) that I can trust with any data -- and I want the actual forms on my site; I don't want guests redirected and I don't want their information/answers floating around for the world to see.  Thanks for any help and instructions about what my next step should be.

    Can you ask separate questions on their own threads?

    Yes, JotForm will work fine on Wordpress site.
