Re: "Either way, you need to make sure that the JPEG stays in the directory with the model or Pro|E may not be able to find it."
I believe the config option "save_texture_with_model" set to "Yes" addresses that problem. The default value for this option is "No".
If you can get your picture changed to a decent black and white line drawing,
i.e. open in photoshop or gimpand change to black and white, run the "Find Edges" on it.
Print to a pdf and then upload to http://www.pdftodxf.com/
Then you can just open the dxf as a part and start extruding or sketching on it.

Is there any way to import a "picture" file into a sketch in a model in
order to quickly create geometry? Say you have a typical installation
drawing for some product that, as usual, only shows some of the
dimensions. Is there a way to import that into a model in order to use
it to create features? The "picture" would be typical type; jpeg, tiff,
pdf... Alternatively, are there other program that could take a
"picture" file and convert it into something Wildfire would accept as an

there's also a neat little tool with the name IMG2CAD, see http://www.img2cad.com/
With a bit of parameter tweaking, you can convert ordinary bitmaps to usable dxf's.
