As I know, TB uses mbox. 

nnfolder is Unix mbox, so it's not problem at all.
For nnml groups, "cat * > mboxname" should work. Then you can copy all
mboxes to TB mail dir, and restart TB. It can read and list them.

For bbdb, maybe you can find something useful from link TB can import LDIF
or CSV.

And I have a better solution: stick to Gnus and forget TB :-p Esp. for
archiving emails, when some folder has huge emails (in number and disk
file size), you'll feel painful.
