If I understand your last question correctly, you're asking if
Gotland was populated independently from Sweden and later was conquered by
Swedes and its population assimilated by Swedish-speaking people. I don't
know if that has happened, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen

Dear Hakan,

   My suspicions, at least as confirmed by a Gothic site:  Gotland, centre
of the Baltic homepage
 but apparantly Swedish occupation came very much
later than I thought.
