Can I import a private key (without the cretificate, just the key) into a .jks using the keytool command

Is my thinking on this correct ?

No.

  The file format of the JKS file doesn't permit you to have a private key without at least one certificate, nor can the standard keytool import or export private keys. What you CAN do is import or export PFX files, using the importkeystore operation, or import/export certificates.
