Can an an existing website (created in Dreamweaver) be used with it enable the client to edit only specific data e.g page, or selected data within a page.

Does is work like Cush CMS?

Not really. You would need to move your existing website across to Silverstripe before you could use it to edit content.

So in order to let your client edit data, you would need to:
1) create a new silverstripe site
2) move your existing design into a new silverstripe theme
3) move the existing content into the silverstripe cms

Only after doing that would they be able to use SilverStripe as a cms.
