The proper answer is that natively you cannot (although I have not looked into the PS commandlets... maybe there is magic there).   You used to be able to do some hackary and make it happen but I believe that has not worked for some time also. The best option is to create a shared archive and import into there.

I would also add that most commonly, PST files do not have the same formatted envelopes that natively journaled messages have. It is not uncommon for people to think this is a really good idea, but find it is not as they muddy the clarity of their Journal by adding different formatted content within the archive. Best to keep it in a separate archive and include it in searches where the data is relevant.

Yes, natively the import wizard cannot import directly into a Journal archive type.  There is some "hackary" that can be done in the DB to modify the type to a Shared archive and then import the PST.  Once the PST is imported the type can be reverted back to a Journal type.
