I am not aware of any web frontends which let you import or otherwise
change versioned repository data.

Checking out via a web frontend would be unlikely as well. If you're
trying to check out to your local machine, then you would use a local
Subversion client, such as the command-line client or any of the
several available GUI clients. And if you intend to check out to the
server, then that's something the Subversion developers I believe
consider an unusual use case, and don't provide any particular
support for. You can of course ssh in to the server and use the
command-line client to check out, if your server uses any OS except
Windows, or even on Windows if you run an ssh daemon in cygwin.

Listing repository contents, browsing log messages and past
revisions: this is what most of the web frontends I'm familiar with
do. I already mentioned several names to you and the page where you
can find links to them:
