You can go layout by layout in the original file, enter layout mode, then do a 'Select All' layout object items, copy them, and then paste them into the corresponding layout of the new branched file that you are working on. Provided that not much has changed schema-wise in your new copy, it should paste over just fine and work like it used to. Hope that helps. There's no import tool or other method of direct import.

As long as the base table of the layout hasn't changed, the copy-there and paste-here aproach between old and new versions of the same file should work. There may be a few fields which need repointing if they've changed, or buttons need to be checked if scripts have been added or removed.
Just one tip: Copy-and-paste of a layout does not preserve the tab order, so you'll need to manually reestablish the tab order after pasting in the layout ...
