Yes and yes.

Assuming you have all your music on one device (let's say /data/music, with 
deviceid 1), and that your mood files are stored in ~/.kde (otherwise the 
file naming convention was not changed since I made the mood-with-music files 
hidden), a one-line bash command run from ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok/moods/ 
 for file in *.mood ; do mv $file `echo $file | sed s/,data,music/1,./` ; done
should do the trick.  And if they're stored on more than one device, just do 
the above for each one.  An easy way to figure out the device number is to 
calculate a mood and look at what the mood file is named.

If you change whether mood files are stored with music it'll copy existing 
mood files from one place to the other.

I hope this helps!
