It would be easier if you could upload the template and provide us to a link
to it? If you cannot do this can you provide us with a link to a screen
That way you are more likely to get useful feedback. I am quite sure what
you are aiming to achieve is possible, just not sure of the best way to go
about it from your description.

Activate the layer where the original image is located. When you import
your image (File > Import), click and drag the import icon to set the
size, rather than just clicking.

A Fireworks .png is different from a regular .png. Fireworks adds some proprietary info. If you have a Fireworks .png, then, yes, it won't work quite the same in PS as it does in FW (and it won't work the same in PS as other .png files).
If the image is a FW .png, then you should be able to open it in FW and see if it has layers (similar to PS). If so, then simply find the bitmap object which is the background picture and delete it. Copy your photo in and move it in the layer stack until it is below everything else that needs to be visible. (Click and drag, very easy. )
If the image is not a FW .png, then...well...it depends on the image, whether it has layers or is flattened, etc.
I actually got it to work by opening with PSD. Then, I forget now. LOL, but converted to a smart object and edited from there.
But it worked great, just need to remember how I did that for future use.
Thanks for the replies.
