You can refer to this external doc and include the needed pages as floats:

\externalfigure[cursus-pdf][page=1,width=...].

Probably also
\startTEXpage
\externalfigure[cursus-pdf][page=1,width=...]
\stopTEXpage

works (untested).

if included as float there is no risk that the pagenumbering dos not work.

Kind regards
Willi
