What is it you are really trying to do here? If you create based on a
working copy then it will be pointed at same repository location. Is
that what you want? It is not clear. If you are just saying you have
an existing checkout on disk and want to create a project for it, then
yes sure. Subclipse supports that. Here it is in the docs:

The stuff you ask about in #2,3 makes me think I do not understand
what you are doing in this step either. Have you tried doing Team >
Add to Version Control on the new folder before you move the items
into it? How are you moving the items?

Subclipse cannot support virtual folders or linked folders. Subclipse
is ultimately a GUI layer on top of the Subversion native libraries.
Those libraries work with your file system. They have no way to
understand or be aware of Eclipse-specific constructs that are not
represented in your actual file system. They can only work with a
single contiguous working copy.
