Hello, one question…

It is legal for a user to purchase my theme HTML and transform it into Wordpress for own use?

Real case:

“My Boss buy this theme to be converted in wordpresss and i am his developer now. your theme is awesome but but i have one problem the vegas slider wont load to the wordpress no matter how i tweak”.

Yes – he cannot resell it on here or another marketplace but once he has bought it he can convert it for private use (or his boss!). It is DEFINITELY not your issue to fix his problem with the slider though

Yes it is, they has bought a license to use in which they want, a popular exercise is to convert to another cms (a lot of agencies use their own custom cms for the clients)

The only rules on buying the license is they can’t resell the theme on TF or any other marketplace, and they can only use the theme on one client project.
