Are you wanting to import data, or import then **edit** data? The first is relatively easy - create the database then use the osmosis `--write-apidb` task to import data (keeping in mind that `--write-apidb` is *amazingly* slow). To do it properly (not giving superuser to every postgres account involved) can be a bit annoying.

If the latter, then you need to muck about with sequences so when you add a node it gets a suitable ID.

Having set up an apidb database a few times for testing, I can say that it was *never* properly documented anywhere.
