I was looking at certain things IE how armory works, and if we read in the information as if it was a string from the armor, as if we loaded the page and then viewed source, we would get sections such as:

i dont think that would be very hard to parse... just look for the corresponding tag that you want to import, and parse it accordingly... I dont know what file I would need to start editing and what the protocol is that was used for doing so. for instance if I was to write a java program to do this, I would read in the page, and then parse the file, taking out the information as it is fed in, storing it in the appropriate values, and then setting them in the database accordingly... I just dont know where to start, it only appears to be a few minor edits on terms of pulling the data off of their pages since everything can be retrieved as it is displayed to the end user IE the html source that your browser recieves. Am I getting anywhere?

The file format is XML, which is relatively easy to parse. The problem, AFAIK, is fetching the pages reliably. Asking too much of them too quickly results in the armory's anti-DOS kicking in.

You could write something up in java, but roster itself is completely written in PHP. A java addon may be possible, but would probably be tricky to get to work on all servers.
