Greetings, FocusGirl, and welcome. You asked:

<<I want to roll over a rollover IRA to my existing Roth and I understand that that money is considered income, but - will the rollover funds be considered part of the $2000 yearly limit on contributions or not?>>

No, rollover money does not count towards your annual contribution limit to an IRA. Therefore, after the conversion is complete, you may still contribute up to $2K to either a Roth or a Traditional IRA provided you are otherwise qualified to make a contribution.
