    And if so, how would I do so?

    I have years of mail on Gmail... I want my Gmail emails to simply be "transferred" to the iCloud account. Is it possible? Thanks in advance!

    You can easily do it with the mail.app. It's very easy with Lion, you just need to add a gmail account* and then add a mobileme account. All you have to give is your login credentials and mail.app will do the rest. You will then see 2 accounts in mail, 1 for gmail and 1 for mobilme.

    All you then need to do is copy your folders overs from gmail to mobilme.

    * You might have to first enable IMAP under gmail settings -> Forwarding & Pop/IMAP
