If you want any "depth" to your structures, then the UML Pattern feature won't help you; you will need to look at XMI export. You can either do a straight import of the XMI (Ctrl+Alt+I and remember to tick the "Strip GUIDs" option) or you can use an MDG Technology to configure the "New Model from Pattern" command (first button on the Project Browser toolbar) - see this page in the help file.
