An iTunes 'Consolidate' will take all the music that is in the iTunes Library and copy it to the Library location currently specified in your Preferences. You can change this location prior to a consolidate, if needed.
iTunes will not look outside its Library for other music files. If it doesn't have the song reference in the Library, it will not be consolidated.
the files, not move them. You can then delete the underlying music files on the PC after verifying that the consolidate went as expected.
If you consolidate to a location where music files already exist, iTunes may or may not make a duplicate file (not quite sure on this one).
