Before you read anything else, read this question, from this very forum, on import:

Next, read the links pointed to in that question, including and especially;

The import guide

And then join the import list and discus your dataset and desire to import it, and get community feedback on the suitability of the data from a legal, quality and technical perspective.

Generally, though, imports are frowned upon in the OSM community, and taking on an import is a process that should only be done if you have a very complete understanding of OSM and are willing and able to oversee the process, which may mean weeks or months of revision, assuming the data is suitable at all.
