Adding styling to a flowing text layout
I have to do an epub which the source file is an InDesign .indd
I know how to style certain tags but I see this particular document has images with wrapped around text. I would think I would need to use css here but a little worried how much work this will take.
A pic of one of the pages is in the attached.

In itself the wrapping is not really a problem. A float right can help you there. I see more potential issues with the lists. The image you attached is doable, but I do not know how the rest would be.

In order to wrap text around pictures, I think you need to get into the HTML.
Attached is a good example of an EPUB book where this is done extensively. You can look at the code there.

If you obsess on achieving an exact facsimile of the source, portable between different readers, you'll go mad. If you'll settle for the spirit of the layout, it's quite possible. See attachment.
I wouldn't even think of "conversion". Get in there and do some coding.
