Greetings, Oarsman, and welcome. You asked:

<<I've been reading up on IRA's -- all about conversions, starting IRA's, etc. -- but I haven't seen anything that gives me a concrete answer concerning my specific situation. Does anyone have any information about fees, penalties, etc. that I may incur by doing this? Or will it be "free" -- just like transferring stock from an old non-IRA account in order to start a new non-IRA account? >>

Any fees are contingent on your present IRA custodian and the investment itself. Many losing custodians will charge a liquidation/transfer fees and some investments like mutual funds have a back-load (commission) that applies when you sell that investment. So, check with your current custodian to see what fees may apply in your case.
