For the bonus question with extra points *hint hint* =)

Insert > OLE object
At this point your mouse icon will change.  It'll be a cursor with a triangle, cirle, and square beside it.  Click where you want the presentation to go.  Note, you have to click between columns for the insert to work properly.  Now click Create from File, and select the powerpoint presentation and click OK.
