Unhappy File location MAPI or mobile address book

When I moved all my outlook 2010 data from XP to win 7 outlook 2010, I lost a lot of my contacts. I notice under the address tab in outlook account settings, there is an outlook address book and a mobile address book.mapi. One time I actually got stuff to show up under the mobile book. I think this is the data from my blackberry. I have searched and searched and can't find the file location for these mapi files.

#1 where are the files located? Are they the same as the pst data base file?
#2 can I combine these files into one?
#3 also, I have several email accounts. Why do I have to have suggested contacts, contacts smith, suggested contacts outlook, contacts rescuer, etc. when I go into my mail section? The MS tech set everything up to go under the "outlook" contacts for all email accounts. My file is HUGE and I was told it will probably crash! (It didn't help that he literally tripled my email messages and then could not delete the duplicates. He tried some software, but it didn't work. Now I'm manually deleting all duplicate entries.) But, I still show all these other suggested and contact lists, but they are all empty.
#4 wouldn't it be better to have a data file for each address account that includes that accounts address and info only. Or will that mess up my calendar on my blackberry because I only use one calendar name.

I'm getting really frustrated. Please help.
