XF 1.5 Importing From VBulletin 4.0 while keeping urls as is

I have a small forum that has about 6k threads and 50k posts,

1. Is it simple to transfer VBulletin 4.0 forum to XF 1.5? Is there a good straightforward importer that a "non-expert" can use?

2. The forum threads are of the type - "abc.com/8799-how to get-stuff-done"
Can the urls be kept as-is after the transfer. That's the big question because I want to avoid redirects.

There is a built in importer for VB4 which is very straightforward to use.

It is not possible to keep the same URLs.
You will have to use redirection scripts if you want old indexed links to automatically redirect.
