Help me move into a new Mac!

Being neither satisfied with a laptop nor a desktop I have decided to ditch my iMac, get a refurb Macbook Pro with a Henge dock and I have some questions regarding the new Macbook, the migration, and what to do with the iMac:

1) I just purchased Lion for the iMac. Does the refurb Macbook Pro come with Lion, will my license transfer, or do I just need to buy it again?
2) I trust there's a way to migrate my files and settings to the new computer. What is it? Is there a process that will move my 3rd party software as well?
3) How do I prep the iMac (OS Lion) for sale (security and privacy)?
4) What is the best way to sell the iMac? I live in Springfield, MO so I don't have the largest local market, yet eBay makes me skittish. What would be a fair asking price (2008 model, mint packaging, 21", RAM maxed to 4G)? I hope to get 600-700. Is this reasonable?
