    If I'm right PCAD's Camtastic can do that.

    gerber to pcb

    gerber to powerpcb is possible but u will lose some paramters durring conversion process
    u can use cam350 for conversion by creating netlist and so on....
    but it is not a good suggection since chances of hidded error

    If you want any of layer as a reference for routing . you can convert ther gerbr in to dxf using"GerbTool" and can import as dxf.

    Re: gerber to pcb

    Most CAM tools capable of grouping objects to create parts can do this.

    First you load gerbers & drill
    Define parts etc
    Then extract netlist

    For Power PCB you would be best to use a Gerber editor which will export a native PPCB file such as Cam350 from Downstream.

    You will not find any free veiwer I know of that will do this easily.
