Does this type of encoding take a long time and a lot of processor power? How long would it take on my pc (specs below)?

There are quite a few, starting with Nero! which can convert you .avi to a vcd.
There is also Pinnacle Express which is very easy to use and comes with some video cards.
Finally if you go to divx-digest there is a part where they explain how to use VirtualDub and another program to extract the audio from the movie, and then rebuild it with a simple program which I can't remember the name right now.
And there is also this shareware which you can try and if you like can find on most P2P http://www.divx-digest.com/software/aviconverter.html
