Another approach is to try to get all the metadata into the images, then just import them. I.e. add a stars1 tag to all images with 1 star, a flag tag to all flagged images, etc.
Then do the reverse operation once imported. It's a bit of work, but might turn out to be faster than translating one database schema into another.
This approach assumes the files are of a type capable of storing tags, and that the Nikon software lets you filter and tag the results.

We have a full documention of Database schema. Look there :
If you write a script to do it, we will interrested to host it in
digiKam repository as a 3rd-party code.
There is also a file in bugzilla to be able to import database
contents from other photo management programs.
