The closet I've found is a kind of paste where you do this: drag the
tab of the origin image over to the tab of the target image. The result
is a new layer in the target image called "dropped buffer". However, the
entire origin image is imported flattened.

I drop the selection to the target image, the icon under the mouse

Hmm, you're right - the closest I can find is to click and drag the layer group
into the GIMP toolbox (which creates a new image using the layer group), but
there does not seem to be a way to do the same with a pre-existing image (SWM
or otherwise), at least not via click and drag.
Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
