Hello @jayvdb ,
Please add in more on what is expected to be done for this task?
Presently, I have added import functionality in pywikibot/ and i'm unable to progress further on how to add them in the above mentioned scripts.

Change 201582 had a related patch set uploaded (by Prianka):
Added cross-wiki Special:Import support in core.

As @XZise has suggested on the changeset, API action 'import' should be added as a new method in APISite.

Change 201582 abandoned by Xqt:
Added cross-wiki Special:Import support in core.

Not an appropriate implementation. api action=Import should be used instead of old compat-like special page api.
