The . in the extension to me looks in the wrong place, try .pm6

Interesting thought, but I suspect the file is actually a training manual and that's the real name of the file, with no extension at all. Pagemaker 6.5 files would have had a .p65 extension, I believe.
I got the same pb on window 10
CS3 is unsupported under Windows 10 so this isn't at all surprising.
Open PageMaker file in InDesign (in version that "support" pm65) is a wrong way.
Try another trick:
1. Find a PC or do VM with WIndows 98, install PageMaker
2. Do PDF from PageMaker
3. Open this PDF in Acrobat DC and save as docx
4. Place docx into indd and re-makeup text
5. Images import from PDF (3.)
This is faster way to redo the work than try to find many bugs of pm65 import to indd.
I respectfully disagree. I’d open the PM file in InDesign (CS6 or earlier) and then make a call on how good or bad it is.
I respectfully hate "open PM file in InDesign" because this files always have bugs. Adobe was do ugly import pm65 into indd and my strong IMHO to re-makeup indd from the zero source text and images. And one of ways to do this in my previous post.
Yes, in pm65 you can have many styles, but I prefer to re-style again.
