I might be able to help out with the images problem --

There is a "Find and Replace" plugin that goes through your database  
(using direct MySQL calls, IIRC).  You might dump all the images into  
one directory, and then figure out a way to replace all existing  
image paths (within posts only!) with the one new one.  You're losing  
whatever organization might have existed, but it would probably be a  
lot easier than remaking a whole directory structure....


Hope it helps.

Tell your friend to quit hosting sites with disreputable companies!  :\
