    I have acquired a used iMac with the original owners software/iTunes/settings still in place.

    Will the Migration assistant wipe everything on the computer and replace it with my files or will it add my files and change things to my settings?

    MA can create a new user on the new computer by copying the entire user folder. This method will not wipe anything.
