Try zipping the files, then changing the extension to .cbz or cbr (if you use Winrar). Then, Calibre can convert the .cbr or .cbz files into epub.

Try this:

and then change the extension name to .cbz (back it up first, just in case).

Try converting .gif to .jpg and then follow the instructions that I gave you before. I found a few .gif to .jpg converter online, but I haven't tried it out. Here is the link:

I have made epubs from jpegs using the method that I mentioned in post #2, so this should work.
