If you move or duplicate an iMovie Project and Events, will that clone include audio files and photos you pulled into the project (either from the desktop or the Music or Photo tabs of the Media Browser)? In other words, if I take that moved project to a different computer to edit, will I get missing media because those audio and photo files aren't on the computer now being used for editing? If that's the case, has anyone come up with a workflow that easily contains all media used in a project? Any help appreciated.

Projects and Events do not contain photos and music. Your project contains  the path and filename to the photos and music, which are usually kept in iPhoto and iTunes. If you are moving to a different Mac, there is a command called FILE/CONSOLIDATE MEDIA which will add a copy of music and photos to your project. See the details here in the last paragraph.https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-4141
