The only way that I see to achieve our desired goals would be to show the Visio users how to improve their drawings so they give the EA import at least serviceable diagrams. Problem is that I have completely eschewed Visio and other tools in favor of EA for so long that I just have no idea where to tell them to begin.
To start with, open a diagram in Visio then check for Template property at File | Info
As Nizam mentioned, if there is no relevant template specified like UML, BPMN Diagram, etc then EA wouldn't understand what type of elements are being imported.
If your Visio guys are able to port those diagrams to other new Visio diagrams containing the right templates and if the element types in the diagram does match with the elements in the template then importing those diagrams should work fine.

Did you try this method?

Do you have any diagrams in that package with note or other elements which don't appear in the Project Browser?
If those elements are locked by other user then you won't be able to delete them.

One other workaround could be is opening the target package as a list and then drag the items back and forth.

That's not possible and probably won't be added.
Depending upon the length of the path the menu could become too big.

Also if I could find in which diagram this legend has been used will more useful

The problem stated here is bit confusing. You say that you've turned on an option and EA is behaving according to it. But, you don't want that to happen?
Or, do you mean that you don't want the effect of that option to be applied for package elements?

Going by the above conversation I can suggest to check if your model has set a Project Template Package

And, without populating GUID column it won't work.

I did consider using the default diagram but I cant stop people from changing this using the EA permissions.
You may find yourself in the same situation even with some other approach.

That's not a bug. For removing that kind of text, uncheck that section from the Sections window.

I suspect that Frederic is using an old version of EA which may have that bug.
You can try downloading latest (trial) version and then try again.

Not sure if this could be the case but do you have Edit Connector on New option checked? If yes, un-check it and try again.

If you don't have that key present in the registry then create it and try the import again.

Why the "Link to Element Feature" option is not on the menu when I right-click on the end of connector/relationship? It was there when I tried initially but not now! Is there anything to do with the new Diagram or connectors properties?
If you right click at the center of the connector, the menu item will not appear. Try right clicking on the connector closer (say 25%) to the element.

One other way is to display the tag values in a note element that is connected to the relation.

Create a Note element and create a link between the Note and the relation.
Then right click on the Note element and select Advanced | Link to connector Tagged Values
