CMS is for sites that are updated on a regular basis, by (preferably) non-techie folks. If whatever site you want to work on doesn't meet this key criteria, I am afraid what you will be doing is akin to using a sledgehammer to kill a fly...literally.
The way I learned to use Joomla was:
1) Download the joomla manual at joomla.org
2) Install the default template
3) Look at the code in the template, modify it, see what it does and modify again, till i get it to do what i want it to do
Yes, you can use whatever text editor of your choice to modify your joomla templates.

^^^Also search the web for "How to create a joomla template tutorial". I am too bored to start that tutorial. And please this does not classify as a problem, you need to expand your knowlege, plain and simple. I do custom drupal and joomla templates (and wordpress too but to a limited extent), i learnt how to do this by reading developer articles and tutorials online.

Joomla has over 8000 modules & plug ins. You can download some of them for free while some others are available at not-too-expensive prices.
For your templates, you can try themza.com but bear in mind that hundreds of thousands of users are also downloading these templates, so you'll have to tweak to make it original. Personally, I use Artisteer Generator to design my templates from scratch to ensure originality.
All da best
