Migrating to darktable from Bridge, and to other DAM from darktable

I currently use Adobe Bridge as my DAM. I use it to view, tag, rate, import, compare, and delete photos. For me it is completely unusable, mainly because of how slow it is. So I'm trying to decide on an alternative DAM software to use.

Can darktable import my current ratings and tags from Bridge? I see a lot of videos and discussion on moving from Lightroom to darktable; but I can't find any information on whether this is at all possible, or how well it actually works coming from Bridge.

Also, is it easy to transition from darktable to some other DAM software? If I decide after a few months that I don't like darktable, and I'd rather use say IMatch or ACDSee. Would I be able to do that? I just want to make sure that I won't be forever stuck with darktable if I start using it now.
