You can do it for free if you dont mind getting your hands dirty (in the techy sense) by copying the content database and attaching it to SharePoint 2010.

If you can spare a few hundred bucks and want to do it the easier way, consider this tool;

Not seen that specific requirement before, but you could try saving it as a template with content in the first instance.

Beyond that, it's just a list at the end of the day so any decent migration tool should handle it.
