If the file is in Illustrator you can easily change the CMYK colour to SPOT and when you import it into Quark the spot colours are added to the colour palette.
For Photoshop files you can change the file to Duotone or Multitone to get your spot colours, but you have to export as a DCS eps to retain the spot colours an ordinary eps will convert the spot back to CMYK.
Hope that helps.
