We have several new users that were added via the AD and do not showup in the SBS console.  Is there any way to move these uses into the SBS console?

In the SBS console, you can choose to change a user's role. In that wizard, there is a checkbox to show all AD users. Apply the standard user role to the users in AD and they will then appear in the console.

And then, add new users from the console from now on. Don't add users via AD. in SBS, use the wizards. Always.
