did you find a way to import from eagle to KiCad
I haven't, but recreating more of my Eagle projects as schematics in KiCad is helping me get up to speed.
It sounds like we're in a very similar place. I decided to go cold turkey on Eagle to force me to get to grips with KiCad this year. I was using the hobbiest licence for Eagle so my schematics are all cramped on one sheet anyway.
If you use the later releases of KiCad rather than the stable (caveats apply regarding risk, etc) you'll gain the benefit of using Eagle footprint libraries you already have without modification. You can just enter the file name & path and change the file type to Eagle in the table for your project. That has been very handy. Not all work but it is a pretty straightforward fix to make a copy and edit them from there.
The later builds of KiCad also open Eagle board files natively, but I've yet to try that. And probably won't.
I'm using KiCad Winbuilder to do this, in case you're using Windows and hadn't found that yet. It downloads and creates a build from the most recent dailies automagically. I'm not updating every day, as my 2nd build seems quite stable. I'm keeping my projects and libraries outside of the directory tree of winbuilder. There are too many new good features - predominantly on Eagle compatibility and the router - since BZR4022 for me to stay with the stable version. YMMV of course.
One thing I will say is the learning curve for KiCad has been far easier/quicker than (my recollection of) the pain I went through with Eagle initially. The community seems just as active/helpful too. Of course the proof will be when these first 3 PCB designs come back in a couple of weeks and I see what I didn't understand as well as I think I do.
