I just re-read your post.
Your main goal for now is the JAA-PPL(H).
It looks like you have lost overview of your project already.
Download the FCL-2 from your DGAC webite and read.All of it.
In order to convert from FAA to JAA it is not enough to show up with a fresh private, you need a total of 100 hours of helicopter time in order to do so.
Now, recalculate: 100 hours at your favourite school.
Flight ticket to Florida, licence conversion with ground school, written test and flight with an examiner.On top of that 6 hours type rating + examiner on H300.
All of that takes time, every day costs you hotel, food and car rental.
I looked at the prices of that McMinville school. They cannot be correct.
It lists $214 per hour including instructor, others in the same are charge $220 solo plus $44 for the CFI.
The school only quotes 40 hours total and 10 hours of that are fixed wing training. Hello....
Now, back to the drawing board
