    I don't think this is possible, why don't you just import the powerpoint presentation into the correct place inside your keynote.

    Ctrl+click the .pptx and choose "open with" then keynote.

    You may have to do some work to get it to have the same transitions and such but shouldn't take too long to do.

    No problem, just make sure that nothing was messed up when you opened it in keynote. Perhaps do a side by side comparison between the file in keynote and powerpoint.
