Two ways: first the modules specific to Context, like the one that 
handles Pstricks in two passes and thus produces a pdf file with 
embedded Pstricks items, is handled thus:
\usemodule m-pstric
(note spelling)
But for code not specialized to Context a simple
\input statement will do. 
Indeed in many cases a file set up for plain pdftex will process 
through Context without error. But it has trouble digesting the 
eplain macro package.

BTW Context also has an interface to Metapost, through the Metafun 
package, but in many cases that is more work than Pstricks. However 
the flowchart package that feeds off that interface is quite useful.
