a. If you have the pst file, add it to Outlook ('File > Data File Management' on Outlook 2007).
b. Assuming you are having the IMAP already configured then just drag and drop the emails you want to import from the new (pop3) pst file and the existing IMAP email folders.

In Outlook 2010 you can add the pst file from: Home->  New Items-> More Items-> Outlook Data File…

For the Windows RT, sorry I do not have a Surface tablet. I am not sure if these links will help:
