How to "merge" my offline Xbox 360 gamer profile into my new online gamertag for Live play (without losing achievements,points, etc gathered offline)

I've been playing XBox 360 offline for awhile, but have only recently decided to move online and occasionally dabble with XBox Live.
To do this, I got on the XBox site and got myself a shiny new Gamertag.
Thing is, my online gamertag and offline game profile (the latter with all my achievements, points, games played etc) are under two different names, as the name I use for my gamerprofile is a common one and was not available when I went to use it as my online gamertag.
I'm wondering two things - firstly, how can merge things so I have my offline profile become my online one, and secondly, I understand there is a cost involved in terms of Microsoft points - can someone confirm that for me?
Thanks so much!
