If the PowerPoint slide sections are contiguous, I would consider using Adobe Acrobat to combine multiple PDF files -- some produced from FrameMaker or Word; some produced from PowerPoint. All of the options for working with PowerPoint content in FrameMaker are problematic, especially if content will continue to be updated in PowerPoint. You can even add rudimentary headers/footers in Acrobat to handle the inevitable page numbering issues.
