question...can I use GIMP to get this done?

You may find hugin or another panorama stitcher is better at it. Hugin
takes a little work to get used to, but can get good results. Then
maybe use GIMP to clean up the result.

There are four steps, whichever program you use:
(1) combine all the images into one big image, per layer (File-
open as layers in gimp)
(2) correct for rotation and make obvious exposure corrections to the
photos - this is especially necessary if the lighting, focus, or camera
settings such as exposure time and aperture varied between shots at
(3) determine known common points in each pair of pictures and move
them to connect at these points, using perspective and barrel distort
as needed
(4) correct colour casts, darkness etc between separate parts of the
joined-up image and crop away the uneven edges.

Hugin will do step 3, which is the hardest part.
The others, you can do in gimp.
