Recently I've been thinking that I would like to take a more active role in where the money gets invested. Would it be allowed or advisable to roll this money into an ira to have better investment control?

Yes it can be done and is often recommended for the reason you suggested. The IRA could be at Fidelity which might make the rollover easier.

Can it be in an IRA and still be in several accounts that you can move money around in? If so, what is the most economical way to do this?

Probably, but, I'm not sure what you mean by several "accounts." You may have several IRAs, but, moving money from one to another might be a hassle. Within an IRA you can have investments in several mutual funds or individual securities and it is generally easy to move money from one investment to another.
