How can I make my chatter free users into Customer community users?

All my members are currently Chatter free users.
I have purchased 100 Customer Community licenses.
I created a new User profile for Customer community Chatter user.

I should assign all my existing users the new Profile correct?

 How does my new Profile users see Chatter and Community together?

Do I enable Chatter in the community somehow?

Do I add Community to Chatter somehow?

I'm confused as to how they will access both without going to two different sites.

Please help clear up our confustion.

Hi Moore,
You can not upgrade the salesforce license.
Salesforce license serial is Salesforce > Customer community > Chatter
You can move from salesforce to chatter but not from chatter to salesforce, so create a new profile with customer community license and give them chatter access from profile (Tab) and community also (Under Administrator > Member and Tab).

@adeline - Did you ever figure out if this was possible or did you have to re-create the existing chatter groups in CRM as Groups in the community?
