    I've never used Yahoo anything, so can't comment on contacts or calendar. Yahoo email will be trivial though, any email app will do that.

    Pictures from a Mac: sure. You can use a usb cable and try Google's Android File Transfer app on the Mac, or copy over WiFi, or just stick the SD card in a cheap card reader and copy them onto that.

    Same for music. There are some apps that will try to import iTunes playlists (DoubleTwist comes to mind, but it's almost 8 years since I tried that) but I never bothered, just used a usb cable and copied all of the music folders over (I stuck them in a folder called "Music", just to be tidy. Unlike iOS Android doesn't hide the filesystem from you).

    1: Yes, merge.
    2: Yes, copy and paste
    3: Easy unless they are .DRM protected
    Get the case. You only need the MicroSD card if you carry a lot of music and movies with you always.
