I got a notification on my SGS2 today that said the phone memory is nearly full.
So my question is: How can I move apps to the internal USB storage? I don't have a micro SD card in my phone.

I believe you can move apps to the "internal SD card" by going to
Settings -> Applications -> Manage applications, selecting individual apps, and choosing "Move to SD" if it's supported. Though honestly I keep all my apps off the SD, so I don't know whether it tries to move them to external or internal SD.
Check the space used up by your text messages, which is stored in internal storage. Whenever I receive the "memory full" notification, I delete all text message threads, and that always fixes the problem, especially if it's been months and I've received pictures, etc. I also use SMS Backup + to backup all of my text messages in my Gmail before deleting all of my text messages.
I don't think the actual internal storage is full on the SGS II. It's probably the data or cache partitions that are full.
You can go in to the
settings -> applications -> manage applications and clear the cache/data for the "high use" apps.
I have a lot of apps installed but still have tons of "internal storage" space left, but I only have 11% (19.3M) left in my /datadata partition. it was at about 2MB the other day, but I removed a lot of apps that I don't really ever use anymore.
My /data partition, where the applications are installed, has a max size of 1.8GB, but my cache partition, where temporary data is stored, only has 80MB. The cache could fill up quickly if you use apps that cache a lot of data.
There is no solution to this problem. On the SGS2, the Move to SD button actually moves the apps to the external SD (/mnt/sdcard/external_sd) and NOT the interal USB (/mnt/sdcard). This means that the application's data is still on internal USB, but the application itself gets moved to external SD.
The only solution to install large applications on the internal storage is to repartition the 16GB so that you have a much bigger phone partition and smaller internal USB partition (they are both partitions of the same physical disk).
I was also facing the same issue and the below link helped :)
Try one of the following:
*#9900# and tap the second instruction (Delete dumpstate/logcat). This procedure freed about 400MB of my (internal) phone storage.

I hope you will find these very helpful.
