What do you mean "non service-interrupting strategy"? If you have
already POP3 installed and running, there is good chance that
installing IMAP will install another POP3 and at some stage it may
create sirvice disturbances.

Install from /usr/ports/mail/cyrus-imapd23 for example

None that I can think off.

IMAP is a protocols that allows you to READ your email. Your IMAP
client will connect to your IMAP server and retreive emails from your
mailbox. IMAP also allows you to retreive mails from mail folders.

IMAP does not interract with mail delivery. Once mail is delivered
into your mailbox, IMAP allows you to read it.
