PKCS#12 is merely a transport format for all kind of stuff, usually
used for the private key and the certificate. Look out for an option
to export a certificate in binary (DER) format.

You need to start the agent in the background first:
$ eval `gpg-agent --daemon`
the the import might work. PCKS#12 support is very basic.
