Sure, just do it :)

I can't tell you the specifics of the development you have to do, but 
basically, KDevelop supports C and C++. So what you may need to do is set up 
your directory hierarchy manually and then use the "Project"->"Generate 
Projectfile" function to import the whole directory tree to browse the 
sourcecode, set the executable in the project options and test if the make 
run works for you.

no, why should we ? We're using Qt and that is a cross-plattform solution. If 
I were you I would tell my boss that it would be a lot better to rewrite 
certain parts with Qt, if not all of the application and then comile it on 
the different platforms. Then you would also have a Mac version of your 
application available ;)
