Look in the documentation on how to use External Tables. External
tables do support CSV files and then you could use normal SQL
statements to copy from the external table to the table that you want
to import to.

Also, you could take a look on IB Phoenix( website in the Contributed
section for tools. There are tools that are freeware.
