Hi Govindan,
1- From the EEGLAB side,  yes, you can import EGI files using
pop_readegi.m, but for a big file, should be better to use the Biosig
plugin for EEGLAB (you can try both)
You'll find the Biosig plugin in the EEGLAB extension manger:

 File -> Manage EEGLAB extesions -> Data import extensions

After checking out the plugin,  you can try pop_biosig.m,  or from the GUI

File -> Using the Biosig interface

2- Other memory issues can arise from the PC-MATLAB side. Check this link
to have an idea.

Hope this helps,
