    I want to copy someone's website, change some things (logo,background, text, etc. Easy as with inspect element) and then insert it into my wordpress.
    Any idea how to do this?

    Designing websites like this would be far easier than with any theme but I guess there would be some responsive and other problems so can we just copy whole edited website code and insert it into some theme and then fix responsive and other problems?

    Use httrack or similar software. These aren't 100% perfect but will work pretty well, depend on your needs.

    Done some testing and figured out that we can simply edit site with inspect element then save page with browser ( we get same files as with httrack).

    Yah pretty much same.. but if you have lot of pages to download. Like inner pages etc.. httrack comes in handy..
    a year ago.. i downloaded a complete blog 150+ posts from httract.

    If you have some PHP skills you can use cURL to grab what you need. With cURL you can grab the whole page and then you can use str_replace() to get rid of what you don't need, e.g: ads from the scraped site.

    What i usually do is, just scrape the website with a "Save As" and then convert the entire theme to wordpress my self.
