Try: Page> Import, and then select the pages you need to import from the
selected sla file.
I find that on Windows doesn't import the images for the Image
Frames, but does. Try it.

Oh, and go to: File > Document Setup > Sections, from there you can setup
your pages so that the first page in your document starts with whatever
number you choose.

So importing, or merging mulitple PDF's are both viable.
