Moving already installed mod(pack)s into Curseforge

I already have so many mods installed on my computer, and i would like to install them into the Curseforge programm without installing them again. How about just opening the file and Curseforge and just swipe the mods into the right game? Or does such a feature already exist?

    Could we get instructions on how to import already installed modpacks in SUBFOLDERS within the mods folder for Sims 4 so that those can already be shown as installed in Curseforge?

    You can already manually add/drag and drop JAR files into the Mod folder of each instance (modpack or profile).
    Alternatively if the mods are in a single project folder you can use the Import feature to be able to launch it from CurseForge.
