How do I transfer all my Hotmail folders and emails into my Gmail account, before years of emails get lost? Is it possible for me to do this with very basic skills? I use a Mac computer so installing Windows applications is out of the question.

I never used Hotmail, but I suppose that it supports POP3 and/or IMAP, right?
If yes, just install some free mail client like Mozilla Thunderbird on your machine and connect it with both accounts (important: use IMAP for the Gmail account!).
That's the way how I transferred 10 years of mails from my old provider when I switched to Gmail.
