We're in the process of upgrading/migrating our Exchange 2003 environment to Exchange 2010.  I am at the point to move the PFs.  Our current PFs on Exchange 2003 is about 300 GB.  Does anyone have any idea how long this will take to migrate?  When moving user mailboxes we're getting about 5-6GB/hr.

It would be about the same speed as your mailbox move, you can try replicating one of your large PF folders to time it, but it will also depend on item count and item size.

Check out the AddReplicaToPFRecursive.ps1 script for recursively adding replicas (there is also a remove one)

and the following powershell to verify replication status

Get-PublicFolderStatistics -Server E2K10Hostanme"PF_Full_Path" -Resultsize unlimited

Check the replicas and replication status as said by our friend ctc1900.

If this carries on to the workday, is there a way to pause the operation?

I don't think there is a way to pause a public folder replication, I recommend you to divide and conquer, gluck!
