the way I would approach this is to set up a second site, a copy, using the old db as the source. on this copy, create a second news provider that points to the newer site's database. then create a page in the copy site (the one using the old db) that uses two NewsManagers, one for the old db and one for the new one.
Then, using the News API, parse through each old one, retrieving it from the new one by the GUID, and set the category name that way.
Of course, be sure to back up both dbs before doing this, just in case! but I believe this should work, let me know if I can be of any more help!
