Not quite one step, but better than import:
http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/nightly/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-dug-import.html#tsvn-dug-import-in-place

It is in the documentation for the forthcomin 1.5.0 release, but will
work just as well with the current 1.4.x release.

See above.

In 1.5.0 there is an option to delete an item from subversion without
deleting the local file/folder.

You still have to ignore manually, but there's not much we can do
about that. TSVN doesn't know whether it should ignore MyFile.obj or
*.obj, or indeed whether the item is already covered by something in
the ignore list which was added after the item was versioned.
