Currently the Office Connector plugin that Confluence utilizes to import Office docs doesn't support the .one format. The only workaround currently is the one you've mentioned of converting the format of the files. I've raised this feature request: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-30883 asking our development team to add support for that format.
While we can only wait for feedback from the team I suggest that you vote on that issue and watch it for updates directly from our devs.
I was trying to find out how to do this after seeing an Evernote add-on in Confluence 5.9.1 which is a bit new than this 2-3 year old thread! Anyway I expected this would be available in recent 2016 versions but I didn't see any OneNote plugins, only EverNote.
Any update/idea on this feature request?
We have released an add-on which can import notes from Microsoft OneNote to Confluence as pages: Microsoft OneNote Import for Confluence

Confluence has great docs on using the REST API:
Using the OneNote Interop is a bit harder to find, but I found this answer on stackoverflow was enough to get me going:
Hi! This app seems to work only with Confluence Cloud, is that right?
They ask for a API Token to get access for the user to Confluence, but the way that Confluence cloud token works is different than Confluence server.
There is anyway to use Zapier with Confluence server or any other app that integrate OneNote with Confluence server?
Zapier's connection to Confluence Server does not work.
If you try to connect Zapier to Confluence server it asks for an API token which is not available on server.
I've reported it several times and they refuse to fix it.
It’s been great to hear from fellow users over the last few weeks about the best tips and fun moments you’ve had working on Confluence since the transition to working remote. I’d love to keep the c...
