  • Why are you using the wizard? Create a local site and fill in the FTP information in Site > Publishing Settings then connect to your hosted site and publish down.

    Importing is for when you don't have credentials to the site and you want to study the code.

  • Linking to your website and importing are unconnected.  By "linking", I assume you mean entering the publishing information.  That has nothing to do with importing a site.  Importing a site is for when it's not your site, and you just want to look at the code: it gets what any public visitor could fetch in their browser.  To publish to your site, you enter your publishing credentials by setting up a publishing destination for the site.  Generally, that would be your FTP information.
