If you just want to embed layers or groups from other projects - this
functionality already exists in core. Embedded layers are read-only
(which is good in some situations, but bad in others).

For situations where you want to change the layers, you can use the
ImportProject plugin as already mentioned. At this stage the layer would
be an independent layer not linked to the project imported from anymore.

Embedded layers that are still linked have to be read-only, otherwise
they have to be copies.
