You should be able to import via IIS and then select the new certificate into your web pages/site.

What happens when you try to import via IIS Security?

Did you already create a cert request from IIS?
Was the new certificate already issued or you just purchase it and now you have to process it?

You need to create a certificate request on IIS then use it to issue the certificate?
Once you get the certificate then you have to install it. You can't just buy one of the shelf.

I would just leave it there since I don't know what it was use for. Most of the time you can delete it but just to be safe I will leave it and focus on the new one. Create a certificate request and grab your new certificate. Don't forget to assign it to what you need it to: SMTP, http, pop, imap, etc
Follow the instructions here to request and install the new one. You have to use what's on the txt file to obtain your new one.
