I didn't see any such docs... ejabberd supports only database conversion for
jabberd-1.4 spool files.

There is a maintenance web-interface for ejabberd. I didn't see any other
useful web scripts.

I don't expect it to be a very complicated task. But for now you have to
write scripts by yourself... 

Just some hints:
1) look at src/jd2ejd.erl to find how to add info to ejabberd database;
2) look at rpc manual page to find how to call the functions remotely;
