I want to overlay a pattern onto this area that I selected but I cannot import my pattern. When I try to access the image I want to use as a pattern it says that no items match my search even though I had placed it inside a folder. How should I import my pattern then?

What kind of image? .pat?  If its »just« an image (like jpg, tif, png, …) you need to create a Pattern via Edit > Define Pattern.

Add a Pattern Fill layer, and scroll down to the end of the list. Your newly created pattern should be there.
