The most important source for information should be wiki/Import

Read all pages related there.

Then: tell us in detail about the licence used that is used when you buy the data. This is important.

How old is the data set, and for what region?

And finally, you should get in contact to local mappers in areas that can benefit from that data.

About technical issues, you can ask here or at teh OSM forum or one of the OSM mailinglists.
