    • Import thread
    • Import post
    • Import poll
    • Import Private messages
    • Import moderator
    • Import smilie
    • Import attachment

    There is no complete photo gallery addon, however the upcoming version 3.7 has photo albums which are somewhat similar. If you are looking for a full gallery system you will have to use an unofficial addon such as PhotoPost or PhotoPlog
    and this:

          Mostly likely, it will not touch your gallery as it is not a default feature within within SMF and a "gallery" isn't built into vBulletin. The only gallery built in would be user albums and I doubt your gallery is based on the same idea.
