What do you want to achieve with importing a "kml file to Openstreetmap"? Oh, and please open a separate question for the second part. Questions should be only one topic here. And search for previous answers first, please.

you are pretty broad in your question (please specify), but try https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Track_drawing_websites - e.g. http://pifpafpuf.de/cycleroute/map is easy to use. There you can draw lines and save as gpx.

Info regarding question 2. For the differences between KML and the data OSM uses, have a look at the XML schema article in the OSM Wiki.
