I am drawing my BPMN diagrams with the Eclipse SOA Tools Project BPMN Editor. Do you know a recommend way to get this diagram to BPEL so that it can be run within JBoss?
JBoss is a company, it does not 'run' anything. JBoss jBPM BPEL is WS-BPEL 2.0 compliant and should be able to run WS-BPEL 2.0 compliant definitions
I've read that JBoss is BPEL 2.0 compliant, thus if I find a solution to transform BPMN to BPEL and refine it with the Eclipse BPEL Editor it should be able to run the process within BPEL.
If the refinement is WS-BPEL 2.0 compliant it should and you run a WS-BPEL 2.0 compliant 'engine' like JBoss jBPM BPEL somewhere e.g. on JBoss AS 4.2

Or are there any problems I haven't seen yet?
Otherwise I have no idea.

The BPMN editor is a pure garphical editor with no generation capabilities. Intalio is layering the BPMN editor to create BPEL processes and WSDL services. The product is available at http://bpms.intalio.com for free.
I don't see how a BPMN editor with no BPEL/XPDL/whatever generation capabilities is useful. Anyway... I think you'd be better off working on the BPEL designer directly.
of course BPMN is not for creating an executable process. It's more for creating an abstract business process which is being transformed into bpel code and then further refined.
