Well presumably it should already?  Unless its been specifically configured not to.
b) read the data that is currently in the ~username/evolution/INBOX/mbox

Depends a bit on the server.  For uw-imapd, you can just copy the mbox files to named files in ~/mail, and/or then you subscribe to the folders using your client.  If the server uses maildir you may need to do something different (i.e. convert the mailboxes).

With uw-imapd folders can either only have messages or only have other folders, since they're mbox files with directory separators.
