I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The documentation outlines importing. https://help.jabref.org/en/#importexport. The home page also lets you know which files can be imported directly, http://www.jabref.org/ - RIS, Medline/Pubmed (xml), Refer/Endnote, INSPEC, BibTeXML, CSA, ISI Web of Science, SilverPlatter, Scifinder, OVID, Biblioscape, Sixpack, JStor, and RIS.

How to convert the existing .doc, .docx to their library format such as BibTex
The documentation outlines office files https://help.jabref.org/en/MsOfficeBibFieldMapping

Is full text search is supported ?
The documentation outlines searching https://help.jabref.org/en/Search

What is BibTex and how it differs from normal .txt, .doc and .docx format?
You can find detailed information on the site http://www.bibtex.org/

I hope this helps with your general inquiry. To get more detailed answers, it will be best to focus a new question on just one item. With a question like, "How to import? or "How to create a file?", it will best to show the work you have already tried and explain the errors you have encountered.
