Did you import the STL using the "Convergent" Facet Body Output Type? If you did you'll have more functionality available that just the standard NX or JT type. The following page lists functionality that is available with the Convergent body type:
https://docs.plm.automation.siemens.com/tdoc/nx/11/nx_help/#uid:index_whatsnew:id1241822:xid1170373:...
The page lists Features and Reverse Engineering commands. The Reverse Engineering commands are what users have used in the past prior to the introduction of Convergent Modeling (Rapid Surfacing, Fit Surface, etc).
You cannot directly insert a hole into a NX, JT or Convergent facet body. You can extrude a sketch to subtract geometry from a Convergent body to create a hole.
