The links are buttonized.  

Gnus links are handled by org-follow-gnus-link.  I can see no reason
why you would use something else than Gnus to open gnus links..

You cannot expand the body of an email within an org-mode buffer, but
you can display it within Emacs by following the link.  I don't know
if importing the body of the email makes really sense, since we want
to keep pieces of informations in their usual places, don't we ?

Here is what an email link looks like :

  [[gnus:nnml:mail.biblio#1351][balado diffusion]]

The first part entails the group and message id.

I'm afraid there is no easy way to do this.  The first step would be
to find an elegant way to export a whole thread from Gnus.. which is
not that easy!

Internally displayed emails is something i've been thinking about when
i was trying to make my org file behave like a blogging plateform.
Emails would then stand for blogs comments.  But i didn't find time to
think about it twice.

Hope you'll find your way through Org, it's really worth the try!
