I have just started with XNA development on Windows. But as I'm a fan of iOS I had to try porting my test code over to Monotouch on the Mac. I used these instructions: http://www.facepuncher.com/blogs/10parameters/?p=42 But this is so much (manual) work! And it really doesn't answer open topics like: why would I copy all the XNB files and in addition all the resources, like PNGs?

Is there maybe a tool that automatically converts a Windows XNA project into a Monotouch iOS project or at least creates the correct folder structure?

I don't believe there is a magical "Port it!" button that will do everything for you, however ExEn does a pretty good job of getting rid of most of the manual work, while maintaining most of your current code.

    \$\begingroup\$ But ExEn is yet another implementation of XNA on iOS. I'd like to stick with Monogame. \$\endgroup\$

Although this video targets MonoDroid, it's still a good reference and can answer most of your questions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hF0sm5KGPPM
