What forum version are the skins you are trying to import and are they in php or html (htm) format?

if the skin has templates, then you can't change the templates in the phpbb3 version used on forumotion

you can only modify the phpbb3 version on forumotion with CSS script..You could host it on your own PC with a home server, or on a host site that allows you a shell account. That means it lets you set up your own directories on it's site.

Those skins are for properly hosted PhPBB2 forums, not free ones.
