Is it possible, somehow, to load an Apache log into Google Analytics for analysis?

You can't import historical data, but there is a Universal Analytics project in beta enabling you to use GA as your warehouse. Anyway, looks like Piwik has Apache2Piwik import scripts included in distro http://piwik.org/blog/2011/06/import-log-files-piwik/ - you should try this one.

You can't load logs into Google Analytics. The service isn't offered and the data types are different - Analytics collects data from the client side while Apache logs are server side.

To analyse Apache logs, there are a number of tools that you can operate yourself such as AWStats (on your server) or Apache Log Viewer (on the desktop). If you are really keen on a Web Application there are a couple of suggestions on this old SO question.
