Perhaps a "Guide" will determine that your question will get more contextual exposure in one of the "HTC Sensation" forums? Either way, here's hoping that you find the help you need.

Go to settings and scroll down to Account & Sync and turn on auto sync and once you have a gmail account it will sync.

I've done that, but on gmail- contacts it doesn't bring it up.

Even gave it to my brother who even said it has import button, but it doesn't have it

Go to contacts, select send and then select Gmail as the mode of sending your contacts, and sent them to your new Google account. It will email all your contacts as a vcf file. Open the mail, you will see an option to Import the contacts. Now delete all your phone contacts. And just sync your phone with the new Google account. You are done. Now edit the contacts, upload the photos you need in your android etc to the new Google account and sync it. You are all good.
