Will upgrading to iWorks allow me to transfer all Appleworks files and documents?
No. You can open AppleWorks 6 word processing, spreadsheets & presentations in Pages, Numbers & Keynote respectively. You cannot open any other type (draw, paint or database) of AppleWorks 6 documents with any iWork (no 's') application nor can you open AppleWorks 5 or any version of ClarisWorks documents.
There is no special importing needed. There are several methods you can use, common to most Mac applications. Use the Open dialog, Control- or right-click & choose the desired application from Open With in the contextual menu or drag the icon of the file onto the desired application icon in the Finder or the Dock.

If you wanted to batch convert AW5 and AW6 Word processing files into MS Word format, you might consider using Panergy's docXConverter. It is current (v3.3) for Mountain Lion, though their other products are not. The batch convert works by dragging and dropping a folder of AW files onto the docXConverter app. There is a trial version. Price is $19.95, or $29.95 that includes a two year maintenance plan of upgrades.
