Just guessing that you are trying to import a CMS private and public key for 
use with S/MIME?

When reading up on pfx files I learn that they may contain a number of 
objects. So it is hard to say what fails when trying to import it with GnuPG.
My suggestion would be to try the command line with some diagnostic messages 
turned on like
  gpgsm -vv --import x.pfx
and see.

You will need to have the public key for a private key, before you can fully 
list it.
