1. Generally, no, credit card points converted into miles do not count towards elite status tiers with airlines with very few exceptions (AMEX Delta Reserve, Citi American Airlines Executive Platinum), and even those have spending limits.
1a. BTW, I thought oneworld Emerald was their highest tier?
2. I am not aware of the option to directly transfer Asia Miles to AAdvantage Miles, though I know you can book AA flights through Cathay Pacific's booking portal. Having said that, if you want to use AMEX Membership Rewards points for American Airlines travel, the best partner to transfer to is British Airways as their Avios system has some great bargains when redeeming w/ AA.
