I am not good at designing the visual side of a website. I found a website which I gave 10 over 10 because its functionality suits my aims and also it seems very esthetical. I know HTML, PHP, mySQL and some degree of CSS. I don't know JS, Ajax, Jquery.

So I want to replicate this web site (save completely) on my local and then modify it. (content, colors, icons etc.)

I saved this web site in Chrome and IE. After clicking the site from my local folder, a saw an ugly & non-working site.

My aim is to understand the functions of the parts that I don't know. For example when I delete a js in its page what will happen as the result of the deletion operation.

Since the page is too complex it has lots of css, js files to download inside. I don't want to deal it manually.

Is there any alternative and easy way to get the web page completely to my local which also works like a charm from local?

This isn't a UX question I'm afraid. It's more of a question about development processes and techniques. – JonW May 28 '14 at 8:51
