Windows 7: Remove PC from Domain and keep domain profile as local profile?

Remove PC from Domain and keep domain profile as local profile?

I want to remove a PC from a domain and keep the actual domain-profile as a local profile.
I would like to keep all the settings for the installed programs and all my data in the various user folders like \documents, \music, \videos, \pictures ...

Do you have any tutorial like this one to do the above steps without the very hard to use "User State Migration Tool (USMT)" from M$?

Was anyone succesful using User Profile Wizard ?

That wont be simple to do as the permissions for a lot of things will be set to the domain SID depending whats in the profile if you copy it to another profile you may get it working if you take ownership
