Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Yes, this is possible.

You can define an approver in the CSV import file (as long as your project implements approvals).

Task/subtask is a bit more complex.  Your CSV needs to include two columns, one of which will not be imported.  It is easier to explain with a very simple example file:

Summary  Issue type Key  Parent
 Alice would like a jaffa cake Sub-task  aaa  bbb
 Bob wants cake  Task  bbb  
 Charlie is bored  Task  ccc  
 Dave would like some cake  Sub-task  ddd bbb
 Edmund would like to tell Baldric that he is an idiot  Task eee  

If you import this file, you'd get three tasks, with two sub-tasks under "Bob wants cake".  Each issue will import "key" as the "external issue id", but the parent field will be lost.
