It has always been very basic to always maintain a backup copy of your computer.
You can transfer itunes purchases from your iphone to itunes on your computer. Without syncing: FIle>Transfer Purchases
Once they are on your computer, you can sync them to as many ipods/iphones as you like.
The photo sync is one way - computer to iphone.
You can import Camera Roll pics ( taken with iphone) as you would from any digital camera.
You will have to restore the backup you made of your iTunes library on your old computer to your new iMac.
The iPhone is not a backup device. The data (music, video, etc.) lives on your computer and is 'loaned' to the iPhone so you can take it with you.
If you did not keep a backup of your old computer before you disposed of it/sold it/ got it stolen, etc. then you may be able to find a 3rd party application that will allow you to extract your music. This is not sanctioned by Apple.
