Can you help me modify an existing (3rd party) theme

I bought a premium WP theme at themeforest.
http://themeforest.net/item/paradise-hotel-responsive-wordpress-hotel-theme/4845307

I would like to change the 3 featured rooms on the home page to 4 featured rooms.

is this type of customization something you can help me do?

    I am not particularly familiar with the licensing restrictions ThemeForest places on their themes; however, I find it likely that you can allow someone else access to your site in order to complete development work. On the other hand, it's probably not the case that your license through ThemeForest entitles you to transfer the contents of your purchase (i.e., the downloaded theme files) to another party. I looked over their license page briefly, and this seems to be the case. Consequently, if you want this sort of work done, you'll have to send FTP login credentials (and likely also WordPress credentials) to whomever works on this for you.

    Most likely, it will be a simple copy and paste modification, but there is some possibility that it will be more complicated. At any rate, would you mind providing a link to your site so that we may see the theme in use? It would help figure out (at least roughly) how complex the modifications you intend will be.

    I just looked at the live demo for the theme on the author's website (http://demo.smooththemes.com/paradise/), and it appears that this should be a relatively simple modification (assuming no weird backend complications).

    Here is the code for the first of the three "featured room" sections:

    <div class="room-item three columns b30">
                                    <div class="thumb-wrapper">
    
                                <div class="picture">
                                    <a title="Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet" data-rel="prettyPhoto[gl528494cf718e4]" href="http://demo.smooththemes.com/paradise/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/room_2_room_page_2_big.jpg"><span class="magnify" style="opacity: 0; display: inline;">
                                    </span><img class="scale-with-grid" alt="Double room" src="http://demo.smooththemes.com/paradise/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/room_2_room_page_2_big-500x260.jpg"></a>
                                    <em></em>
                                <div style="display:none"><a href="http://demo.smooththemes.com/paradise/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/room_3_room_page_2_big.jpg" title="entesque amet adipiscing sceleri" data-rel="prettyPhoto[gl528494cf718e4]">
                                                 <img class="scale-with-grid" title="Double room" alt="Double room" src="http://demo.smooththemes.com/paradise/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/room_3_room_page_2_big.jpg"></a>
                                            <a href="http://demo.smooththemes.com/paradise/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/room_1_room_page_2_big.jpg" title="" data-rel="prettyPhoto[gl528494cf718e4]">
                                                 <img class="scale-with-grid" title="Double room" alt="Double room" src="http://demo.smooththemes.com/paradise/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/room_1_room_page_2_big.jpg"></a>
                                            </div></div>
                                    </div>
    
                            	<h3>Double room <strong>$180</strong><span> with breakfast included</span></h3>
                            	<div class="room-exc add-bottom">
                            		Sed gravida pharetra purus, vel scelerisque lectus bibendum vel. Phasellus id nulla sed leo ornare porta eu sit amet metus. Donec sodales venenatis eros...
                            	</div>
                            	 <ul class="room_facilities room-services">  <li> <a title="CLD TV" href="#" class="tooltip_1"><img alt="icon" src="http://demo.smooththemes.com/paradise/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/tivi.png">  </a> </li> <li> <a title="Wifi broadband access" href="#" class="tooltip_1"><img alt="icon" src="http://demo.smooththemes.com/paradise/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/wifi.png">  </a> </li> <li> <a title="Breakfast included" href="#" class="tooltip_1"><img alt="icon" src="http://demo.smooththemes.com/paradise/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/breakfast.png">  </a> </li> <li> <a title="Safe-deposit box" href="#" class="tooltip_1"><img alt="icon" src="http://demo.smooththemes.com/paradise/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/deposit.png">  </a> </li></ul>
                            	<br class="clear add-bottom">
                            	<a class="button" href="http://demo.smooththemes.com/paradise/room/double-room/">Read more</a>
    
                                </div>

    and here is the code for that first of the four sections which contains miscellaneous information:

    <div class="room-item three columns b30 st-s-content"><div class="scc"> <h2>Discover rooms available </h2>
    <p>Well magna. Vivamus iaculis sagittis dapibus vivamus iaculis sagittis cenas male cenas mal.</p>
    <p>Well magna. Vivamus iaculis sagittis dapibus vivamus iaculis sagittis cenas male cenas mal. Well magna. Vivamus iaculis sagittis dapibus vivamus iaculis sagittis cenas male cenas mal.  </p>
     </div></div>

    How are these sections administered in the backend? (Screenshots would be helpful.)
