can I split one big file, e.g. icd.xpt to more files?
e.g. icd.xpt (small), icda.xpt, icdb.xpt, ...

If yes, how can I import the files?

sure, actually this is quite common.

You can call other definitions with the EXPAND keyword, the definitions need not to be in the same file. You can either import the namespace of the file
«IMPORT my::other::template»

   «EXPAND DefinitionFromOtherTemplate FOR this»

or qualified
   «EXPAND my::other::template::DefinitionFromOtherTemplate FOR this»

See Root.xpt as an example (ignore the encoding issues if you see some, these are just the guillemot brackets).
