There's something called PCL-CVS, which is included with Emacs.  I
use git.el not magit so I can't really say how similar it is.  Probably
not much.

As for shuttling between git and cvs, the Debian description for package
git-cvs says:

 The git cvsimport tool can incrementally import from a repository that
 is being actively developed and only requires remote access over CVS
 protocol. Unfortunately, in many situations the import leads to
 incorrect results. For reliable, one-shot imports, cvs2git from the
 cvs2svn package or parsecvs may be a better fit.

In short: I would not risk it.
