Most FTView ME applications use "Direct Reference" tags, like you're accustomed to browsing directly to the physical controller for.
You can also browse to them directly out of the RSLogix 5000 *.ACD file; it's the "Offline" folder that shows up once you associate the RSLinx Enterprise shortcut with an *.ACD file.
You do not need to export or import or manipulate them at all.
The trick is that you need to create a Shortcut that points to a controller, even if that controller doesn't exist on the network.
In RSLinx Enterprise, you can right-click and create a network module, then a controller, to point your shortcut to. RSLinx Enterprise will create and delete devices that it discovers automatically, but ones you manually create persist until you delete them.

The printout I have does not have the whole web address, but the topic is Answer ID 54104 in the Rockwell Automation Knowledge Base. It details upgrading to Consolidated Product Release 9, Service Release 1. There are a fair number of hoops to jump through, but it was the only way to get FT View to acknowledge the PLC I was using. Once View recognized the PLC, setting up the shortcuts and offline file worked as described in the Help.
