First, it is possible to import an XMI file into Papyrus. However...
Import of models from different tools has been a problem since, well, the second modeling tool was created.
XMI was supposed to solve this problem but, commercial proprietary tools being what they are, really saw the need to export their models in a way that competitors could make use of that. A look at the OMG and INCOSE efforts in that direction shows the general lack of interest from most tool vendors.
This has typically resulted, with some notable exceptions, in partially importable models and the loss of any graphical information.
The most common problem when trying to import these models, in my experience, is the difference in namespace definition in the XMI file, where many tools use their own implementation instead of using OMG's. This is then compounded by extensions that tool vendors add to their implementation of UML. So if you feel comfortable hacking XMI, you might get to the point where you have an XMI file that will import in Papyrus.
That being said, there are high-level plans to address this some time in the future. However, and because of what I stated above, this will most likely be "specific tool to Papyrus" translations, most probably targeting at first the most used SysML tools.
