as far as looking for templates, a google search might get you started in the right direction. If you already have some skills, then I would advise just building it yourself. You'll get exactly what you want and you'll have more control over it, and you can make sure it passes validation. As far as shopping carts go, I know paypal offers merchant services. Another option is to sign up for verisign, and get a reputable secure connection service provider who can handle credit card transactions for you. Personally, getting the secure part down while having a decent looking site will go a long way towards making people likely to buy items off of your site.

DreamWeaver "Templates" are just HTML files with certain bits made read-only (as opposed to the common meaning of "template", that is, a complete design which you can add your own content to). The layouts are meant as a convenient starting point for your own documents. In the real world, the DW templating system is really irritating, and the dynamic inclusion of content server-side probably wins all the time. I suppose the layouts may be used sometimes... but it's usually better to write your HTML from scratch.
