What You could try is to create 2 test news and export them in 
Administration -> DB Management ->Export.
This would create a zip file in WEB-INF/pakages.
If you check that zip file you will see it contains the 2 xml files and 
a manifest.xml file that describes the data.
If you can produce a zip file with the same format with all your old 
news you could import them in
DB Management ->Import.

Best regards,
