You may insert the pdf document "as image" (Insert menu; choose link or embed) or you can copy the entire pdf file in your file explorer and then paste into a slide.

It is accepted like another image.

If you do this:

right-hand mouse > Edit with external tool ... then a pdf viewer should open.

I found no other sign of having a pdf content...

If you import a pdf document with more than 1 page the import only shows page 1, the other pages are obviously not imported.


PS: Be aware that you work on LibreOffice higher version; I tried on LO on LinuxMint-64. And the above mentioned proceeding is about Impress, not PowerPoint.
