    I think you are a little confused about what is a.rar file. (I could not be reading correctly. It is after 3 am here.)

    Essentially a .rar is a compressed file. Think of it as a different .zip.

    UnRar is a really great App. It's what I use.

    Once it's "unpacked" it will save a .mp4 (or whatever the file is "packed" file) to the same place the .rar is. You can then drag and drop it into iTunes.

    Remember: if you didn't play with iTune's setting, it will copy the file. You should then be free to delete the .rar and orginial .mp4.
