    You can use ImpEx (downloadable from the members area) to merge 2 boards. At this time ImpEx only supports merging into a vB3.5 board.

          Sorry no, you can not downgrade.

          Is there any reason you want to stay on 3.0?

                Use Impex.

                      You use Impex to import data from one forum to another. We do not have an import service available at this time, but we are available for help and support if you need it.

                          If you import users with the same email address, they will be merged. If they don't have the same address but they do have the same name, the imported ones will get a new userid and the name will have 'imported_' added to the front of it.

                              Yes. Or you can use the Associate Users function in Impex. Have you looked at the documentation yet?
