I want to look more at direct page editing. Both for content and layout. I know it is possible with VS but I doubt that is the best way. Going to look at PhpStorm.
Also, I have my desktop setup to run a WordPress website as well. Looking into transferring the entire WP file structure between GoDaddy and my local machine for editing. If this works well, I believe I will use this in the future for editing and testing before uploading to the live GoDaddy WP site.
