Please help, I'm totally confused!

Currently;
I have a website built with MrSite.
I pay Streamline for web hosting and domain name.

I want:
To build a replacement website with Wordpress.
To pay Crazy Domains to host the website and transfer the domain name to them too.

I have managed to successfully transfer the domain name to Crazy Domains.
Now I want to transfer the web hosting from Streamline to Crazy Domains, but I don't really know where to start.

I already have a website and hosting package with Crazy Domains, and I want to add an addon domain to this containing my new website (I have unlimited addon domains within my hosting package).

When I try to add an addon domain, I am told “Addon domains will not function unless the domain name is registered with a valid registrar and configured to point to the correct DNS servers”. Should I change the name servers for my new domain to those of my old domain (the original website I started with Crazy Domains).

Presumably, all of my website files are held with MrSite, so I won't lose anything once my Streamline account expires..??

I am completely out of my depth.. Please can someone point me in the right direction of where to start?
