Hello, I would like to buy a phone from koodo that is only available online, but I would like to keep my number from another carrier.  The number is tied to a sim card that will not work in the new phone... so what would be the best method to do this? Order the phone online, then go to a kiosk to switch numbers and activate it?

Order the phone you want; it will come with a temporary number. Once you set it up, you can port your current number to Koodo, which will close your old account.
