Not sure if I understand, but you can upload the images from your source environment as glance images into your openstack environment (openstack image create --file /path-to-vm/vm.image <IMAGE_NAME>, then launch instances from those glance images via openstack. Is that what you're asking?

Shut down the KVM VM, then upload the VM's disk (often a qcow2 file) to Glance as eblock says.
