    I can't answer the later, but only you can decide if selling one computer to buy another is right for you. Desktops are great. (Generally) more processing power, larger screen, and more apt to a home office environment...but they are landlocked on the desk. You can't unplug on a sunny day and take your Mac with you. Tradeoffs I suppose.

    Since you already have the MBP you may want to consider this

    Twelve South BookArc Desktop Stand for Notebooks - Apple Store (U.S.)

    along with a good quality 27in Monitor plus Wireless Keyboard.

    Probable total investment $400 to $600 which give you a lot of the functionality of the iMac w/o sacrificing the portability you now have.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Also, take a look at what you are using the computer for.

    Do you need something mobile or is are you okay with a desktop?

    I can tell you that, for me personally, I do not need a mobile computer (iPad does the job) and I LOVE my 27" desktop. It is especially great for movies and streaming video. If you play games, the 27" screen is awesome for that as well. So just take a look at your own individual needs/wants.
