Sure, I can. In my case the Powerpoint Template is quite complex, the
template file has more than 100 pages with lots of graphics, tables etc.
Fortunately I only need a subset for my upcoming presentation.

1) I gathere all the background images in Powerpoint. I copied them from
the slide master view and put them into separate png files using xnview,
Gimp or Photoshop serve as well.

2) the template uses different backgrounds for title and the rest, the
following snippet allows me to to so (found on te.xstackexchange)



\ifnum\c at framenumber=1%







3) Adjusting the layout of the table of contents: solved via
TeX.stackexchange as well,

4) I needed to adjust the height of the footline as well,


\patchcmd{\beamer at calculateheadfoot}{\advance\footheight by
4pt}{\advance\footheight by 25pt}{}{}


5) Currently I am working on some fancy-looking section-pages, this will
probably result in a TSX question as well.
