EDL. make sure you are importing the EDL into the same type of project.
Sorry there is no way to bring all of your effects. It will only bring in the Video Layer 1 clips too. There are many restrictions with EDL, but at least you don't need to start from scratch on another system.
Also set the type of EDL import to Reconnect... The you have to reconnect 1 item to get others to come in. Make sure your clips are all in one folder for best reconnect results.
