Let's suppose that the IRA is 25% after tax contributions and 75% is before tax contributions and gains. I can't specify to convert just the 25% that has already been taxed so any amount converted is comprised of a 25% non-taxable and a 75% part which is taxed. Is that about right?

It's exactly right.
