You can just import the pages. File Import Pages.

However, I wonder why the ads need to be placed in their approximate places in 
the first instance? Import the text, and then dump in the ads? Then text 
would flow as required. 

Another thing you can try, is, dont use Automatic Text Frames and import the 
text into the first frame, place any ads, then link the next frame in, place 
any ads. If the text is overflowing in a frame Scribus doesnt have to draw it 
anyway so you should gain a lot of speed there.
