Easy with Presentations. The following draws a Sin curve in the 3D xy-plane.


Draw3DItems[{Draw[Sin[x], {x, 0, 2 \[Pi]}] // RaiseTo3D[0 &]},

The following places a 2D contour plot in the xy-plane.

 {ContourDraw[Sin[x y], {x, 0, \[Pi]/2}, {y, 0, \[Pi]/2},
    ColorFunction -> ColorData["BrownCyanTones"]] // RaiseTo3D[0 &]},
 Lighting -> "Neutral"] 

It is also possible to raise a 2D plot to a curved surface.

I have a 2D graphic that I wish to place on the xy-plane and display in a
3D-coordinate system.  I've tried using Import but with no success.

Any ideas?
