iPhone and multiple library troubles

Alright, here's my situation:

-Computer: iMac, Mac OS X Leopard, iTunes 8.1.1.  The current library for this installation of iTunes is located on a secondary hard drive, at: Audio:Music:iTunes:iTunes Music

-External hard drive: Holds the iTunes library for my home computer.

-iPhone: Holds its own downloaded songs and applications.  Used to be homed/paired/joined/etc to a PowerBook that has since died.

I'd like to combine all iTunes Music Libraries into one library.  I'd like to keep this library on the external drive so that I can use it at home and at work.  I'd like the iPhone to be homed at the work iMac.  So, how do I combine all of the libraries (I'm okay to lose playlists, but I'd prefer to not)?  And, how do I move my iPhone to the iMac without losing any of the applications that I've paid for and downloaded to the iPhone?

Thanks!
