Well, first you go through the docs for what is in what edition (or see MOS Differences Between Enterprise, Standard and Personal Editions on Oracle 11.1 (Doc ID 465460.1)) and see what major things you are using.

There's also a feature usage table, although it can be slightly misleading at times.

I think the import will just skip stuff it can't handle. There are bugs related to this, so you can search support for workarounds if you hit them.

Of course, it appears the MOSC community is fubar right now, I'm pretty sure this has been addressed on both sides of the community.
