by importing Serato's Crates half of the job would be done
I'm sorry, but I have trouble following: Why would importing tracks from a crate analyze songs?
while testing my theory, BT created a folder for each song int the MUSIC folder.
I guess you are using a folder-based library. beaTunes' concept of such a library is that all tracks are stored in files/directories within/below a base folder. Therefore, when you are importing a track from somewhere else, it creates a copy of that file within the base folder. And in order to create a structure that makes at least a little sense, it uses your existing album and artist names as folders.
A better way of importing only part of your library (how many songs?), might be to point beaTunes to a different, suitable base folder. You can do so by creating a new folder-based library (File menu). You can switch back to another library in the general preferences.
Im so sorry, I didnt see this reply...
Songs wise, around 170k (yes, I know Im a digital hoarder ;))... so this would take a full week to analyze the whole library; hence being very impractical...
I'll try your suggestion
