Maybe what you're looking for is __import__()?

>>> help(__import__)
Help on built-in function __import__ in module __builtin__:

    __import__(name, globals, locals, fromlist) -> module

    Import a module.  The globals are only used to determine the
    they are not modified.  The locals are currently unused.  The
    should be a list of names to emulate ``from name import ...'', or
    empty list to emulate ``import name''.
    When importing a module from a package, note that __import__('A.B',
    returns package A when fromlist is empty, but its submodule B when
    fromlist is not empty.
