Oh boy. I wish people would stop asking about importing non stock models so that I don't have to keep making the same explanation over, and over again. Anyway. To open non stock models you will require a special version of the MS3d importer which has is fully functional. That is to say, the current one which people can download has had something done to it to prevent non stock models from being imported. There are, to my knowledge, probably three people who have this plugin (I'm not one of them so dont' ask for it), and the reason so few have it is to prevent mesh theft (which has happened on many occasions).

You could have a hunt around or make a request for a program called "Lithium UVMapper". It was made a couple of years ago, and under this name it is a freeware modelling texture application program. Its inbuilt importer will allow importing of non stock models, but be warned. Doing so may land you in a bit of trouble (so be careful!!!).

Alternatively, you could simply aproach the modeller whos models you wish to use and ask. The worst that will happen is they'll say "no".

As for hardpoints. Lord Apophis is quite correct and remember that I did release a tutorial a good while ago concerning the matter. A models poly count is found out by clicking the TOOLS drop down menu and selecting SHOW MODEL STATISTICS. The number of triangles is your poly count.
