You can download the Google Earth Add-On. It imports SketchUp files as well.
But I am not sure if it works with SketchUp 7 or only with an earlier SketchUp version. You will have to try.

Edit: Actually, this Add-ON is only available on Windows.
As far as I remember Google did not provide the necessary environment so no ArchiCAD Add-On could be made on the Mac platform.

Mac users without any access to Windows have to export as 3DS (e.g.) from SketchUp and use the 3DS Import add-on (download from the AC Help menu) to import that file. Only SketchUp Pro can export as 3DS though.

There may be some skp-to-3ds converters out there somewhere via Google otherwise?

(Some people use a Windows virtual machine on their Mac to run AC only when they need to use the add-ons not available for Mac ... and then continue their work on the Mac side.)
