theoretically, it's possible to do it with a script...
... you may need to extend the scripter first though...

... scribus is not meant to be a tool which places complete layouts...

the easiest way to solve your problem is to create the scribus document
and use an external tool to concatenate the bits (the scribus generated
pages and the other PDFs you got).
but i since i don't know what you exactly need and what are your skills,
it's hard to give more exact hints...
