[Dovecot] Conversion from Evolution maildir to imap

A customer has a thin-client server with 100+ homedirs with Evolution.
They are using POP3 and maildir.  Now I want to switch to IMAP.

Can I use Dovecot on this maildirs, or does Evolution use another kind
of maildir?

Does Dovecot change anything in the maildirs?

Do I loose my flags this way, like "read" ?

Normally I am using Cyrus IMAP. What I want to do is to install Dovecot
to have access to the mail over IMAP because Dovecot can do maildir
(Cyrus cannot). Then I can use imapsync to sync everything to Cyrus.
Do you think that's a good idea?
